They are not experts on urbanity. Want a proof? Check out Warren county and how urban it is....



Again, it's not your fault you are from New Jersey...
No no no! It's too late to back down now. You claim wikipedia is the be all to end all source. Remember?! I pulled that from wiki (your favorite source) so its fair game. Oh how the tables have turned...

It's indeed not my fault I'm from NJ lol, but it IS your fault you don't know what you're talking about You should Google some more stuff, you may actually be able to form a good point of view to come back with lmao!!

Nice try and thanks for playing.

Single government, planning, transportation system ets are reasons the city grew to what it is today.

New York City is a city while Hudson County is a conglomeration of municipalities and it shows.
Basically my point.

Im not going to say that hoboken is the suburbs, its definently not a sixth boro of nyc though

Yea it's not.. but i's not our fault that you can't get NJ off your mind and that you've been sucking on NJ ever since you created an account.

When you hate a place, you hate a place- There really is no discussing it for an extended period of time- It's just not healthy. But when you envy a place.... You corrupt your mind focusing on that place, and imagine it to be so much less than it really is- Get a grip, take a deep breath, and focus your attention away from NJ- It's making you look like a pathetic moron.

Jus tryna help

This thread is just all wrapped together. Also everyone's making sense except a select few. Hudson County is the clear cut answer in my opinion.

Just a question, if Hudson County was a NY county would you still say Nassau County or Yonkers is the 6th borough? You know since HC is suburban and all.

Theres no such thing as an outer borough. The first time i heard that term was on city-data. The city of new york(which is its official name not nyc) grew up together developed a culture together and the bulk of its population is in its so called outer boroughs. Anything outside of that, is outside of that. There is no sixth borough.

A) I knew this thread was going to make your panties wet.

B) An NYC based blog proposed this question, not NJ.

C) LOL @ you for being so emotionally invested in any & everything New Jersey. The opposite of love is apathy, not hate.

Not to burst your bubble or anything, but the 'City of New York' didn't grow up as the five boroughs.

Every other borough was annexed over time.

'Outer-borough' is a term widely used in NY. That includes NY media (TV/Radio/Paper/Internet). Even when I was stationed in Ft. Totten all the boroughs that weren't Manhattan were considered the outer-boroughs

Commercial deals up in outer boroughs, too | The Real Deal | New York Real Estate News

"The decades-old debate about how to lure more yellow cabs to the outer boroughs led to an angry showdown at City Hall yesterday after the city's taxi chief shot down a proposal to set up 10 cab stands outside Manhattan."

Ohhh stop even engaging this dude in a serious manner................ Clowns get talked to like clowns. Period.
After he attempted to discuses the Port Authority & relieved himself for the know nothing, false pride, surface individual he is; it was over.
A lack of knowledge & a big mouth gets dealt with accordingly. He gets nothing but made fun of from now on.
