Most Important Cities in America

i was thinking and what are the most important cities in america? i'm originally from california but we all know new york is the most important city in the country by far.

what are the top 5 most important in the country?

new york being the most important, what are the next 4?
chicago, los angeles, dc, houston, boston, atlanta, philadelphia, etc? chicago or houston probably. los angeles is more of a film city while houston is home to the 2nd most fortune 500 companies in the country after new york. houston also is home to nasa and is into the oil industry.

sorry if this thread seems dumb... i've just been pondering on various things today. a boring day at work.

The most important city in the USA is obviously, St Louis, Missouri, home to Anheuser-Busch Company, makers of Budweiser.
Ponder that.

I think each city brings something.

there is no real ranking of importance.
