It used to be the US capital in the 1790s
It's the largest city in the country
New York should not be the US capital. The District of Columbia was created to keep the capital more centrally located and separate from a major city like NY, Philadelphia, or Boston. NY being the capital would put it at risk for more terrorist attacks, protests, and political disputes that come with being a capital city. New York is the greatest city in the world and shouldn't be plagued by politics.
No, just no
Many people even think Toronto is the capital. But it's Ottawa. - Metal_Treasure
Toronto is the economic and cultural capital of Canada so naturally it deserves to be the political capital as well.
Ottawa is the capital for being in between Quebec and Ontario
Berlin is better and the government seat should stay in berlin.
No, Rome was once the capital of the world and is one of the most historically significant cities in the world. Also, Italy is not that old of a country, and there are many differences between the north and the south. Rome is in a great central location that connects the two parts of the country.
No, Rome makes perfect sense as the capital of Italy, considering its history. - clusium
No London is fine.
Once upon many moons ago, Northampton held the title as Capital of England. - Britgirl
The capital should remain in Washington, DC as DC was specially created for that purpose and fulfills it well. Even if the capital was to be moved, it should be moved to a more central location or a location with greater world influence. New York is where the capital would be if it weren't DC. After New York, probably Philadelphia or Chicago. They both have more influence and are better located than Seattle.
Berlin is better.
