Missouri: St. Louis over KC

Ohio: Cleveland and also Cincy over Columbus. It's just national recognition but not necessarily economy based. Having pro sports teams contributes to that.

That's really it pulling up the wikipedia list.
City proper means nothing in comparisons.

MYou could divide it down to counties.. for some areas.

ie. Manhattan NY (New York County) outshines Kings (Brooklyn) and Queens (Queens) and has a far smaller population.

NY has different system. New York City has 5 boroughs (Manhattan, Brooklyn, Bronx, Queens, Stattten Island). Not sure county matters here. NYC is one city for sure.

"based on things like popularity of just more known"

-- what does this even mean? this is such an arbitrary way of looking at things.

The leads aren't by much. Those cultural factors at DFW amount mainly to name references, and the GDP was actually smaller than Houston's until recently, despite being a larger metro area. So it's more of a slight edge, rather than an eclipse.

Overland Park has a long way to catch Wichita, but interesting, this description of Shawnee Mission which includes Overland Park and other towns in Johnson County, indicates it is now larger than Wichita.

I think what was asked was pretty easy to follow. Others had no issues with it. It's not that serious. Just a topic of discussion.

Well, yes actually.

OP didn't really specify a criteria, and its a historical fact that Pittsburgh beat Philadelphia in wealth (stockholders) per capita for good part of the last century. Philly plays third fiddle in its region, I don't think we'll hear anyone refer to Pittsburgh as Cleveland's easternmost neighborhood in the near future. Pirates, Steelers, Pens all have considerably more championship rings than their Philly counterparts.

You might say someone is getting outshined here!
