Question by Babatunde W: Why isn’t San Diego a major city yet?
No offense to San Diego, but San Diego is twice the size of LA and about 4 times the size of Chicago, where I am from, in terms of land mass but has about half the amount of people of both cities. Is it because it costs too much to live there? Also most of the nightclubs in San Diego are in one area the Gaslamp Quarter of like 4 blocks. Why isn’t it more spread out like Chicago? Why isn’t the growth rate as high as metropolitan Atlanta’s? Why don’t more at least middle class black people live there (only 6.9 % according to wikipedia)?
Why is San Diego’s metropolitan area ranked 17th in the US? How come Miami’s and San Francisco’s metropolitan areas are ranked higher? How come the San Diego nightlife doesn’t compare to Atlanta’s or Miami’s?
Answer by Jered M
your terribly misinformed. San Diego is currently the 9th largest city in the united states, population wise thus making it allready a major US city. San Diego poor job market and lack of culture and big city amenities probally contributes to the cities declining population status as it fell 9th to dallas the past year. San Dieo downtown is proximate to a airport to the north and is border by freeways on east and north easternly sides which limits its expansion and growth of tall buildings over 500 ft (which means no skyscrapers). San Diego is 1 million and over and LA is 4 Million and over Chicago 3 million.
