I would agree that Fort Worth is a very ignored major city

I'll second the Norfolk/VA Beach Metro area. Such a large, sprawling area, with the traffic to match hardly ever gets a peep. El Paso is probably the largest city population wise that tends to be ignored. The low to medium density sprawl of South Central PA (Harrisburg-Lancaster-York, etc.) seems to be one of the larger non-important population centers that doesn't get the respect it probably deserves as well.

Definitely Baltimore because of its proximity to DC and Philly.

Seems like no one really cares about Cincinnati.

Fort Worth. It's size of the metro is about the same size as San Antonio, Sacramento, or Portland but it is only ever mentioned in relation to Dallas.

I would also say Colorado Springs and though it may not be considered to be a major city for most Fort Collins too, Both cities are very much overshadowed by Denver. If some major event takes place in either of those cities and makes it to the national news level usually the TV and radio stations in Denver such as "9 News" or KOA are usually the ones that feed the reports nationwide. This happened some years back when Colorado Springs had that big wildfire as it was Denver's "9 News" and KOA's Steffan Tubbs who were heard and seen across the nation reporting on the massive fire and not so much with the local news outlets in Colorado Springs.

I agree with all of these except San Jose. It's the middle of Silicon Valley, which gets enormous attention.

In the national conscience however San Francisco gets most of the attention and San Jose is somewhat overshadowed. Few people know anything about San Jose other than Silicon Valley, and even then, Silicon Valley is still associated with the Bay Area as a whole.
