Ouch, poor Detroit. I could see Detroit being matched with a Rhine - Ruhr city, perhaps Essen.


Otherwise, pretty solid list. Here's mine (sorry for being wishy-washy):


New York...........London
LA.....................Rio De Janeiro or Milan
Chicago.............Berlin, Paris or Shanghai
Dallas................Hmmm...
Houston.............Calgary (energy)
Washington........Brussels
Philadelphia........Hamburg
Atlanta...............Frankfurt
Boston...............Dublin
San Francisco.....Melbourne, Barcelona or Prague
Phoenix.............Brisbane
Detroit..............Essen or Hamburg, maybe Osaka
Seattle..............Copenhagen
