What type of importance are we talking about? I would think economical, but there are many other types of "importantance" you could use; historical, cultural, etc.

Guys be careful with this list, don't let it turn into a city vs. city thing. These types of threads have had a tendency of not ending well lately.

Hello Nate. I'm talking about economy and government. Cities that are the major players here in America.

1. New York

2. Los Angeles

3. Washington, D.C-Baltimore

4. Chicago

5. Boston

6. San Francisco

7. Houston

8. Philadelphia

9. Miami

10. Dallas

I think the politics for DC puts it slightly above Chicago. Emphasis on slightly. Boston for history and education. Bay Area is the 2nd powerhouse on the westcoast and in a state that has a larger GDP than nearly every nation in the world. Houston is the biggest city in a state that also has a larget GDP than nearly every nation in the world and it's medical, energy, and oil economies puts it slightly above Philadelphia and just a tad bit under San Francisco.
