An interesting idea at the alphavictim blog which discusses when the major American cities were founded and suggests the last one was Phoenix, more than 125 years ago. "Anyone who has driven through rural American knows there are some great, virtually deserted places where a major city could have thrived if only America's pattern of immigration and expansion had been different or a major deposit of precious metals had been located nearby. Nice climate, cheap land, pretty setting, lots of water, etc. Just no jobs, I guess. With so many virtual office workers who can live anywhere around these days, could they somehow get together and found a 21st century New York somewhere in rural America?"
