2 NYC
5 Chicago
17 LA
18 Philadelphia
21 Boston
25 Atlanta
28 SF
29 Miami
34 Houston
35 Dallas
36 DC

If I post this, Chicago ranks too high, I am a homer. It should not even be top 5.

Philly is too high, you are a homer. Should not even be top 10. Philly is ghetto and Chicago has gangs.

Boston and Atlanta are also too high, if they post this they are also homers.

Also Toronto ranks over LA as 3rd in N.A.... LA is fabulous.

Please do not post that Philly has the 4th largest media market in the u.s. either, they only have that because of fat philly sports fans.

Chicago # 5 in the World, knew it would be second in the United States but didn't know so much higher than the next city in the United States, Los Angeles not bad either, holding down the fort rather well.

lol this ranking is outdated. London does not rank higher than nyc. London is a village compared to new york. Look at the link, nyc ranks higher than london in every survey

Well we have started an extensive exercise program, it is yielding decent results but losing population

But in all seriousness I see many lists, am curious on this criteria and thoughts. I know a lot of people will say NYC should be #1, well really London and NYC are both superb and are not really seperated by much, either way most would agree they are 1 and 2 regardless. But what are the thoughts on the criteria.

And I agree Chicago gets some just dos on this criteria and ranking, people seem to blast the city yet it is a economic power.
