When you ask "and were from that city," what do you mean exactly? There could be a lot of variables. Is the criteria the city of birth? What about someone who grew up in one city but was born in another? What about someone who was born in one city, grew up in another, then moved to another and spent the majority of his/her time there? Does the amount of years lived in one city matter?

You're right... I stand corrected. The link I had said he was from Philly. He might have moved there for a little but he was definitely born in NYC
