Where is NYC in this Atlantic article?? I read in the NY Times a few weeks ago that 57% in Manhattan have a bachelors and like 34% have a post grad degree....

Brad, the article did mention that over 2/3 of the residents of Midtown Manhattan hold college degrees, but I think the statistics on the chart show entire metropolitan regions ("MSA's"). It could be that NYC as a region doesn't have as high a % of the population with college degrees as some of these other metro areas. Chicago seems to fall into a same category....2/3 of the downtown dwellers have degrees, but the MSA as a whole doesn't top the charts.
