My top 10 would Be
1) New York 8.9 million
2) Los Angeles 4.7 Million
3) Houston- 3.4 Million
4) Chicago- 3.2 Million
5) Phoenix- 1.7 Million
6) Philly- 1.6 Million
7)San Antonio- 1.5 Million
8) San Deigo- 1.45 Million
9) Dallas- 1.3 Million
10) San Jose- 1.06 Million

* Jacksonville would be on SJ tail at 1.01 Million
Last 2 using Extrapulations cause of closeness.
Austin should pass san jose by 2025. Austin should be right at a million by 2020.

Urban areas and MSA's are much more closely correlated than cities and MSAs or urbanized areas, as a general rule.
