The OP and I both put Cleveland on our list (25). It's no longer a Top 20 city and hasn't been for some time, but it's comfortably in the mid-20s somewhere...

I have a lot of love for Cleveland, but let's not kid ourselves and grade it higher (nor lower) than it actually is...

That's not my point. Why is Columbus and Cincinnati ranked higher

Top 30 is subjective but he/she got most of the big US Cities right, we might not agree with the order but he/she nailed most of the major cities.

Thanks Vanderbuilt. I missed Cincinnati and Tampa. I'm taking IE off (it is part of LA) and pushing VA Beach down to the bottom or as a runner up. Boston, SFSJ will jump 2 places up, and SA may go down a few spots. Im not decided if Austin will replace Sacramento yet. Cincinnati will be maybe 2 or 3 spots behind Pittsburgh. You'll see it will be a better list. I will be making a revised list toward the end of the week once I get everyone's feedback, which has been great so far.

Thats s very tiny part of the ie.

Do most people not realize 95% of those 27,000 sq miles are desert?

Much of the ie is part of la's street grid.
Most of sb county is just la county east.

The ie is basically the "affordable" part of la metro.
Theyre la suburbs, and wouldnt exist without it.

There's no way Virginia Beach should be ranked that high.

As for the "Ohio debate" the three C's are pretty evenly matched. Columbus will overtake Cleveland's metro as the second largest in the state by 2020. Their GDP's are also pretty similar, with Cleveland leading the pack. I would say Cleveland and Cincinnati are more important than Cbus on a national scale but that gap is dwindling each year.

New York
LA
Chicago
DC
Philly/Boston/San Fran

The Bay Area is comprised of three major cities and as a whole would be fourth but San Fran gets too much credit imo for the overall success of the region at the expense of San Jose, Oakland, and others.
