THE LV Strip is not a downtown.Its a scoundrelous stretch of serpentine deviltry, a more morally corrupt tract of decadence has never been found.

On the otherhand.Philadelphia is the birthplace of the country and still to this day has the third largest "downtown" population in the usa and continues to grow and prosper. It would be tough to leave Philly out of the top 5 in this particular category.

New York without a doubt. San Francisco is also good.

LA has some very lively parts, just none of them are downtown. Downtown is dead after 5pm. But they are trying to change that.
(I like the UCLA sweatshirt in the picture of philidelphia)

And your right, there is more to being a world class city than cultural institutions, or being major a financial center(NY 2, CHI 5, LA 17 in the world according to Citgy Mayors: World's best financial cities ) . I suppose. LOL Seriously, there are dozens of world class cities all around the world. I'm quite sure D.C., San Fran are included, but even though L.A. is a huge economic engine, it doesn't feel world class to me, although I'm sure it is considered to be. Imho.
Ive gotta disagree with what you said earlier. Chicago is not anywhere near the level New York is (no North American City is). In fact, I would actually say San Fran feels more "bustling" to me than Chicago. Not to diss on Chicago, I love it and would rather live there than NY or LA! But its downtown is not as bustling as NY, or even SF.
