I think you put Cleveland on there twice instead of Cincinnati. Also, I think your lower tier has some cities that I wouldn't include (Sioux Falls, Bloomington, Fargo, Appleton) whereas I would include places like Flint, MI; Peoria, IL,; Toledo, OH; as well as some of the smaller state capitals like Lansing, MI; Springfield, IL; and perhaps Topeka, KS.

Wow, I didn't realize that all those times I was in St. Louis (including just last summer for a Saturday Cardinals-Brewers game), that I actually wasn't there at all

Yeah, putting Cincinnati instead of Cleveland was what I meant to do in my 2nd tier, but didn't catch that error in time after I posted. And yes, I wasn't very sure which cities to put in my 3rd tier, since there are so many you can choose from. I probably should've just skipped doing the 3rd tier, lol....

What is it with you always trying to compare St. Louis to Cleveland or Cincinnati? No one here cares...

How did it "leave it in the dust?" Because they have always been very similar and on two very distinct levels of growth and prosperity.

Maybe in GDP...

St. Louis Metro area is $128 Billion
Cincinnati Metro area is $97 Billion

and Cleveland's is $101 Billion, if anyone was wondering

by 1870, st. louis had surpassed cincinnati in population. by 1890, st. louis's population had nearly doubled that of cincinnati. by 1910, cincinnati had dropped out of the top 10 cities, where st. louis remained for another 50 years. st. louis continued to skyrocket in population, peaking at 857,000 in 1950. cincinnati peaked the same year with just 504,000. that's a big difference. the two cities really weren't in the same league throughout most of the 20th century. politically and socially, cincinnati has always been and remains to this day far more conservative than st. louis, making it an anomaly among major midwestern cities.
