I believe NYC is the norm, but Chicago has what it needs to get some recognition.

San Fran then D.C. then Seattle, IMO. I had to chuckle at Las Vegas. I mean, cmon.... Vegas? Seriously?!?! Fancy casinos and hotels and a growing population maketh not a world city.

Las Vegas is such a hellhole. No where near a world city standard.
