Wow, ok GDP, that is the only thing that seems to get brought up everytime someone compares St. Louis to the 2C's. It is like a broken record at this point....

Interesting point, but it is also interesting to point out that St. Louis declined much faster throughout that period. Now, STL is around 370,000 while Cincinnati is close to 334,000. Both cities are stable and growing, but from 1950 up till the 90s, St. Louis declined much faster than Cincinnati.

[quote=mrconfusion87;16745753]Hi this question about the Midwest has been bugging me for quite a bit now! Of course EVERYONE knows Chicago is TOP DOG in the region but no one seems to be sure who are the 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th most important cities in the region - there clearly isn't much of a consensus on who else are important in the Midwest


Can we just say that the Midwest as a whole is an important link to our countries future.

The Midwest unlike other parts of our country has a vast majority of natural resources that should be protected like water.

The Midwest has for generations produced our nations agriculture as well as livestock.

Being centrally located it is a natural fit that many Midwest cities are areas of distribution and warehouse facilities.

So my question to all of you is, which are the FOUR MOST IMPORTANT cities in the Midwest AFTER Chicago? Why so? I would love to see what you guys think regarding this issue! Thanks!
Aurora, Naperville, Joliet and Elgin.

1. Chicago

2. Detroit
3. Minneapolis-St. Paul
4. St. Louis
5. Cleveland

As a whole, the Great Lakes Megalopolis is the most populous region (53.8 million), even greater than the Northeast (49.6 million).

.....and it covers 5 times as much land area, so let's not go down that route because it's not really comparable.

I feel like Milwaukee is underrated as a city. I think it beats out a lot of other Midwest cities because of its prime location on the great lake. They host one of the world if not the largest music festivals.
