Total-26-27 million.
But Philly is barely growing. How do you see it adding 5 million when it grows by 20,000 a a year now (metro-wise)?

That's bull. They don't include parts of CT in NYC's metro? Where in CT does the metro stop?

Nope. Fairfield and New Haven Counties are part of the CSA, not the MSA.

Toronto considers itself an American city because it's on the north American continent. Silly Canadiens!

I'm sorry my post was so confusing. I did not say philly metro was going to add 5 million. I only said that I think philadelphia's and New York's metro areas will have merged by 2030, so Philly's 5 mill will be added to NY's. Philly has over 5 million now-I don't see too much growth hitting it. Many people leaving and coming but no real population changes.

Also, if there was confusing about my Toronto prediction-I did so because I think Canada or at least that part of Canada will be a part of the U.S. by then.

Yeah its true but it makes no sense. So in reality 2 heavily populated counties in CT are part of the same urban area as NY.

Where do you guys get all this information from? Is it like that in other cities like LA?

Also, I found on citymayors.com the 2020 MSA population numbers and in 2020 it says NYC will be ahead of LA by 7.18 million people. It also says NYC is growing faster than LA. The population change of NYC in 2006-2020 is .66% and LA is .58%.
