Fort Worth is culturally better than Dallas, but it is not the "larger" city. Dallas is still #1 in the Metroplex.

Also, Jacksonville is the largest city in Florida, but almost every other major city is better than Jacksonville.

Poor Oakland, getting muscled out by San Jose LOL!

I think this is true for Connecticut.

Theoretically Bridgeport is the largest city, but i believe that Stamford, Hartford, and New Haven feel "larger".

Worcester, MA is the second largest city in New England. Hartford, New Haven, and Providence are seemingly a lot bigger. Hartford and Providence could duke it out on second big city in New England. Worcester is more of an afterthought.

Columbus Ohio is much larger than both Cleveland and Cincinnati in terms of the size of the city proper and it's population. However, both Cincinnati and Cleveland have significantly larger (500,000+) metropolitan populations than Columbus.

Cincinnati Metro: 2.3 Million
Cleveland Metro: 2.1 Million
Columbus Metro: 1.8 Million

These numbers are constantly debated by boosters for each city. Draw your own conclusions.

Jacksonville is a ruse.
It's a giant rebel flag waving, mega-church going, sprawling hick town masquerading as Florida's largest city when it's, in fact, only the fourth largest metro in the state.
