That has absolutely no bearing on the high level of historic preservation in New Orleans whatsoever.

Of course it has. Those places aren't encased in amber.

There is history all over the US, but Philadelphia and Boston played the biggest roles in the formation of the country. They're also where most firsts and inventions were made as well. They're the most significant places for history in the US. There is more than just battles. They also have the most historic architecture.

Even if you're not solely focusing on a specific period, the fact that they're both settled in the 17th century means they're going to have architecture from every period onward.

That is true of most eastern cities. My town was founded in 1639.

It's the preservation that counts. NYC is very old, but not well preserved.
