Exactly, and it's not "virtually overlap". They do overlap, Laurel MD is both a DC and Baltimore suburb. Odenton and even parts of Howard County, MD same thing.

Dude's been on this same agenda on 10 years now, and all the two metros area suburbs have done is grown closer.

Anyway out of the choice on this list probably NY/ Philly because it's so populated. Although I see them as still very separate.

Maybe LA/San Diego after that?

I'd say LA and SD. I mean, they're in the same state. Philly and NYC have always had a sort of rivalry.

8 years and still going. I see it like this, if DC is what the people pretend it is, then it wouldn't try so hard to latch on to another metro. Go to a real metro of 8+ million, and you'll see how silly it is to claim a separate metro. Using the CSA metric doesn't make DC feel any larger that what it is.

Laurel is all DC. DC accents, DC public transportation, DC culture. We don't want it.

Tampa and Orlando are pretty much contiguous and they comment back and forth. Honestly almost every state has some version of this kind of arrangement.

LA and San Diego are in different worlds. San Diegoans really want nothing to do with LA. Baltimore and Philly, nah. Philly looks down at Baltimore. Chicago and Milwaukee, no not by any stretch. By process of elimination, that leaves NY/Philly.

Chicago and Milwaukee do have a connection...not sure where you're coming from.

Why not Chicago and Milwaukee? And doesn't NY look down on Philly (and every other city for that matter)?
