I went with the Twin Cities. It's nowhere near what Detroit was in its heyday, but thanks in no small part to a far more diverse economy, it's going in a completely opposite direction of the Motor City.

Detroit or the Twin Cities--hard to say. I can't believe people voted for Columbus or Indianapolis...Oh wait, yes I can.

Obviously Twin Cities by most any relevant metric.

Columbus!? ....not even 2nd in Ohio.

Detroit was probably 2nd until 8-tracks disappeared, now it's just Number 2.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Columbus does very well then for not even being considered 2nd in the state of Ohio.


Number "2" after Chicago: Tie between the Twin Cities & Detroit.

Twin cities hands down. Detroit is done for unless something changes within this decade.
