Yes. Dramatically so.

Except in the North/Northwest metro.

In Minneapolis/St. Paul they don't. It's one of the biggest core vs. Metro divides I've ever seen and MSP suburbs are suburbs, through and through. Although of course it's fuzzier on the borders: to me parts of SW Minneapolis can mirror Edina, when I travel north it can be hard to tell when I've left NE Minneapolis and entered Columbia Heights. However, what about in Seattle? I never spent any time in their burbs.

To all of the people who mentioned Next: thanks, now I have "Too Close" stuck in my head.
