Explain to me why I'm wrong and why those 5 cities I have mentioned do not represent American cities.

Every American city is a mixture of those 5 cities.

First off, the most populated areas of the US are on the right-hand side of this map:




Second, all five cities I've mentioned are on this right-hand side of this map, except Phoenix. But then, the left-half should also be represented.

Easy.

The OP stated this:


If you were a tourist from somewhere outside of North America and you wanted to spend a month in the United States touring and visiting the country in an attempt to get the most authentic understanding of what the United States is really like, what cities would be must visit cities for you?

Crime, urban decay, racial tension, or car dependency is nothing that is a unique thing to the US.
One could for the most part stay in whatever country one lives for that.


It like asking where in England should I visit to get an authentic experience and offering as answer.

London for the crime.
Stoke on Trent for urban decay
Kingston upon Hull for Council housing
Birmingham for racial tensions.

And just like what OP said:

Quote:
I ask because for better or for worse NYC is not an accurate representation of what the rest of the United States is like, but NYC is a highly visited city by foreigners. So if a tourist wanted to get an accurate representation of what the country is really like, what Five Cities would a tourist have to visit??
Those five cities I've mentioned are far better representatives of the US than NYC, which is what the OP was looking for.

I don't see many cities that showcase the diverse geography of the US winch is second to none...

I'd say:

Boston (alternate Philadelphia)
San Francisco (alternate Los Angeles)
San Antonio (alternate Dallas)
New Orleans (alternate Atlanta but I wouldn't put Dallas and Atlanta in the same list)
Chicago (alternate - well, maybe Detroit or St. Louis for a midwestern feel)
