New York metropolitan area - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Not to split hairs, but you are referring to the CSA (combined statistical area) as opposed to "metro area". Even Stamford fails to make the cut for metro area.

Not that ridiculous.....the idea of "consolidated areas" is that many adjacent areas that produce a giant continuous urbanized areas have many areas of business activity that would be significant business areas in and of themselves. On this basis, the Census Bureau only considers "NY primary metro" to be the 5 boros, Westchester and Rockland counties; I guess they assume far more people in those counties commute to NYC than to White Plains. Even all of Long Island and all of the NJ suburbs are simply part of the CSA and their own primary metros (Stamford's is the Stamford/Norwalk/Bridgeport area).

That's funny. Tell someone in Westport that they're not part of greater NYC and see what they say.

No I wholeheartedly agree with you I think the CSA thing is a complete crock, just trying to explain the Census Bureau's rationale....

My guess would that it depends: Transplants in Westport would probably be all "nu uhh" the long standing multi-generational residents would likely be like "duh."

LOL, no, not at all. Everyone in Westport is well aware of their associations with New York City.
