Next city to join LA, NYC, Chicago? That's hard to say because on one hand you have very fast growing sunbelt cities like Atlanta, DFW, Houston, Phoenix and on the other you have (currently more important) cities that are'nt growing nearly as fast like San Fran and D.C.


I think I'm a little confused with CTown's question. You ask what city will boom (the cities that are most likely to catch the big 3 are already obviously booming)
. SO I think who will join the big 3 is a different question. As to who will boom next, I would say Charlotte, Raliegh, and Richmond are poised for fast growth. NC is already seeing a huge influx of northerners.

Ok. Well as long as no catastrophe occurs in DFW, ATl, PHX, or HOU, I would say that at least one of these will be commonly considered on par with the big 3...well I guess the big 4 or whatever in 20 yrs at most. Come to think of it, I'd say DC has an equal chance as well. Nova has seen alot of growth the past decade or so but astronomical housing prices have cooled the market. If that gets under control the DC region could grow even more and link up with baltimore. DC-Baltimore could very well be the winner.

I would already say that DC is either 3rd or 4th in the Nation in terms of importance but size.....that's another issue. City proper is only half a mill or so and the MSA is a little over half of Chicago's.

I agree except I would take out Phoenix. They have a while to go to even be compared to DFW, Houston, or Atlanta. The fourth city you should have named was Miami. At least all those cities are at 5.5 million and above. Phoenix, I believe, is just barely over 4 million.

Do you think any of the cities you listed might make it over 3,000,000 people?I was thinking Houston,but thats a given,unless growth slows there.What about some of the other cities through,any chace they might make it over 3,000,000?
