I agree. If a 6th borough should be established, It should be a city that is attached to NY.

or just keep five boroughs and replace Staten Island with Yonkers. I mean, S.I. feels like Jersey anyways.

Philly is the only thing close to a 6 boro on the list...and there is some fact to it

- Closest Big City to NYC
- Affordable
- Commutable
- Center City does have a Manhattan like vibe
- Alot of ex-NY'ers are living in Philly

Yep its Philly...Pretty soon Philadelphia and NYC will be one giagantic Metro Area the signs are all starting to point in that direction as the NYC MSA slowly invades to the south...
