Can you suggest a book or article that discusses the rise of America's leading metropolitan areas?

I am looking for an easy read that covers urban planning, class matters, etc. For instance, the book might discuss the events that led to the building of the city's skyline or the roles of the elite in encouraging innovation.
An ideal piece of literature would discuss the growth of the areas in terms of what they all have in common.
