Honorable mentions also go to Buffalo and Syracuse.
Almost never hear about those cities,outside of sports anyway.
I don't even know what they have to offer.

El Paso, Texas never hear about this city!

Fort Worth, Texas? Dallas gets more love in the media.

Virginia Beach, VA <--huge suburb in the tidewater area, kinda boring besides the beach when I lived there.

Upstate NY cities are basically the same demographically than NJ cities (ie: Trenton).

Same in general actually.

I can see this, but I think its well represented on a global level. Its undoubtedly a world city, and one of the best.

People may disagree on here because Chicago has a pretty big rep on here (thankfully), but the coasts (NY, DC, LA) soak up 90% of the media.

Media plays a huge part in this. Constantly getting the same two (sometimes three) cities shoved down the national throat.

That actually is something I think that is to Chicago's benefit.

St. Louis is definitely one of the most ignored by far. We never get any attention from the media at all, even in terms of negative attention like cities like Detroit gets-we've lost more of our peak population percentage-wise than Detroit but no one ever talks about the urban decay StL has faced. Corporations ignore us, airlines ignore us, and sports leagues (see: NFL) try to ignore us too. You never hear about the Cardinals or Blues on ESPN as much as teams that are as or less successful than them. St. Louis isn't just facing decay of its urban fabric and population shrinkage, like Detroit, Cleveland, or Chicago. No, it's facing something much worse: increasing irrelevance.

Wow I really wouldn't call a lot of cities people have listed as "major cities".

For me I think Sacramento gets overshadowed by the other major cities in the state. Fort Worth gets overshadowed by Dallas, a lot of people just view it as a big suburb when it's an independent city that has it's own identity. Jacksonville almost has 1 million people yet Miami, Orlando, and even Tampa overshadow it when people talk about Florida. Indianapolis gets almost no recognition too. It has almost 900K people in the city proper and their downtown is actually quite impressive.

False.

And I didn't quote it, but you're DEFINITELY wrong about ESPN and the Cardinals...

Definitely Ft. Worth, Indianapolis, Norfolk, Buffalo, Jacksonville

Honorable mentions:

Omaha, Grand Rapids, Providence, San Antonio, Salt Lake City

Note* I do not consider all of the cities major, but even the smaller cities are ignored.
