There are 238 cities and regions in the running for Amazon's new $5 billion headquarters. But there are five in particular that stand to benefit most, if selected. These are the so-called Rust Belt cities of Buffalo, Chicago, Cleveland, Detroit and Pittsburgh, which meet a handful of criteria. First and foremost, each of those five locations have populations of 1 million or more, as well as a median home price that's below the national average, and an unemployment rate that's above it. And with the exception of Chicago, they're all declining manufacturing hubs that could use a shot in the arm. Further, the population growth in each of the five cities has lagged the national average since 2010.
