But for it's size still get's good exposure because of the historical relevance. Was it's largest in the 1950's census @ 230,000 people. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Richmond,_va

I think Minneapolis/St. Paul and Columbus, Ohio are the most over-shadowed cities in America. I know
they are known. But for cities of their size they are heavy-hitters in almost every way. They both have
very low unemployment rates, some of the highest numbers of college students per-capita in America.

If one looks at the corperate base in both cities they would be shocked at how corperate headquarters are
in both of those areas.

Minneapolis and Columbus both have incredible neighborhoods and amenities for places of their size.
