Four Largest Metro Areas in Each U.S. Megaregion

For each of the 11 U.S. Megaregions, name the four largest metropolitan statistical areas (or census metropolitan areas in the case of Canadian cities.)
Answers with asterisks are cities located outside the U.S., but still considered part of one of the megaregions.
Don't be too literal about the region names; just because a city is in the Great Lakes Region, that doesn't necessarily mean it sits on the shore of a Great Lake. Think more broadly.

Thanks for the compliment! There's no way that I know of to nominate a quiz for featuredom. Just have to butter up QM somehow, I guess :)
