There is only one choice:  DC.

And the only other cities that should be on that list to choose from are Boston, Dallas, Philly and San Fran.  And Atlanta should be added, as it is THE CITY from Dallas, north to Chicago, east to DC.

It is laughable that Detroit is on the list.  Hysterical.
Detroit was a major point of commerce before half of those cities were on maps.

If you want to measure by economic impact then it's Seattle home to Microsoft, Amazon, Starbucks, Nintendo, Nordstrom, Expedia, REI, Boeing, Zillow, Darigold, Costco, Eddie Bauer, Red Hook & Pyramid Breweries, legalized marijuana, gay marriage, charter schools, & the only active volcano in the lower 48.

Why we don't have all 4 major sports is beyond me but Chris Hanson is working on it!

Also Rainier Beer was founded here but is now owned by Miller Brewing Company.

Yes, Seattle is really killing it.

swamp, the key word in your post is:  WAS.  That place is a complete and utter disaster.

You dont have all four becuase you couldnt figure out a way to pony up the bucks for a basketball arena.

speedfreak has just solved this dilemma. Top three are frauds. Therefore, you don't have to find the fourth. 

Top city in America is wherever your memory leads you.

Nintendo America is headquartered in Redmond, WA but yes Nintendo is a Japanese company and they own the Mariners.
The owner has never even been to a Mariners game, even with the great Ichiro hear for 11 years!
