Probably has to do with the energy industry, space program, and huge medical center. Home to many of the world's "firsts" in those categories, so not as surprising as it may seem.

My vote goes to NYC. This country's well-being comes before movies.
Usually this country's "well being" is ruined financially by New York and has to be saved by the movies. Los Angeles is much more than kids and 'immaturities', whatever that means. You think there is no economic and political influence eminating from the largest city in the largest state in the nation? Puhleeeeeze! Back to school for you

I don't mean that in a rude way, I'm just wondering...
Well Detroit may be sinking now, but they've had a lot of influence on American politics. Detroit has always been at the forefront of American auto policy . It's the largest city in a major swing state. Most of all Detroit has been instrumental in the destruction of any regulations or policies that would damage it's economy and any city that can make itself that important deserves my vote.

I wish not to break any forum rules, so I won't go crazy on you. At the same time, as the OP of this thread I find your comments have no purpose. In fact stay in LA and don't ever visit Chicago. We don't need people like you here.

Only 2 votes for Detroit? The city was the "arsenal of democracy" during WWII, building the bombers, jeeps, weapons, etc. that helped the allies defeat the nazi's. Arsenal of Democracy - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

That's something that's acutally important unlike L.A.'s hollywood culture that has helped our society so much(ya right).

Detroit not only put the world on wheels, but Henry ford started the $5 a day wage, and the modern assembly line. These two things alone had a huge influence on the average working american.

The city influenced the 60's and 70's music era with the motown sound(Marvin gaye, temptations, Supremes, Four tops, Jackson five, etc.), and the 80's with the birth of techno music. The 90's and present with Kid rock, Eminem, White strips, Madonna, etc.
