Logic dictates that Cincinnati will probably have a larger base of architecture and "commercial corridors" if we're strictly talking "size." Cincinnati became a city in 1802; St. Louis in 1822. Founding is irrelevant, but that's quite obvious (re: Charlotte or Sault Ste. Marie).QUOTE]

Trust me I not trying to start anything, but St. Louis was settled in 1703 founded in 1764 and became a city in 1822 only because Missouri didn't become a state until 1821.

Cincinnati was settled in 1788, incorporated in 1802 and became a city in 1819.Ohio became a state in 1802.

Like you said founding is irrelevant, but St. Louis is the older city.
