Which metropolis has the most intelligent residents? The Daily Beast crunched the data on the brainpower of America’s 55 largest cities, from first-to-worst — collective brainpower. “More than sports prowess or political leanings or wealth or cultural accomplishments, this is the quintessential list for bragging point of a metropolitan area, the civic version of a playground taunt: I’m smart, you’re not,” said Daily Beast.
So in terms of sorting out which cities walk the walk, The Daily Beast said it’s decided to play scorekeeper and specifically, it’s ranked the relative intelligence of every major American population hub, from first-to-worst.
Spoiler alert: We’re #51. Nashville is #19 if you are into regional rivalry.
PS: We know the unending rankings of cities often mean little, but we still enjoy seeing them.
