the one I'm most familiar with is Los Angeles and Long Beach (raised in the big brother city, live in little brother city) but Santa Monica could also be a sibling city, at least with the Westside

Los Angeles - Orange County not really a city, but you get the point.

I think you could make a good argument for Boston - Providence if you wanted to ignore the Boston - Cambridge relationship.

I think that's pretty common. People in Boston and Cambridge are always talking about "the other side of the river," and looking down our noses as we do it.

I'm not sure I really get the question in the same way as a few others did, though. The answer Boston-Cambridge seems wrong to me, because for the most part, I consider Cambridge to be part of Boston (just not my favorite neighborhood). I agree with the others who suggested Boston-Providence.

To me, a smaller city that borders a larger city generally loses its identity to the larger. You need more space between the pairing. Minneapolis/St. Paul is really the only instance I can think of, where the two directly border and neither is subsumed by the other.

Haha, more like distant relatives! Those cities are all pretty far away from Atlanta.
