Agreed.

And the Richardson Telecom Cooridor and also the Tollway district all have tall buildings outside of the the Dallas City limits.

Las Colinas is continuing to expand rapidly, however, it's more in the form of residential building.

I lived at 555 East William, which is the large tower in the middle of the photo you posted.
Tower Plaza has its own Wikipedia page (how cool is that!): Tower Plaza - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Newark and Jersey City are not suburbs. They're their own city. Remember that they sit in the New York–Northern New Jersey–Long Island metro area. Just ask anybody about Newark and they'll tell you just how "suburban" it is. If anything, White Plains is a tall suburb of New York. Then again, it's not really a suburb. It's just called the "grown-up suburb".

You guys need to realize the real definition of a suburb. The only time you'll find tall suburbs are suburban cities/towns with corporate parks.

Agreed. White Plains has its own urban center that serves Westchester Co. It's a very beautiful area as you head up the Major Deegan.

Akron has its own metropolitan area. I'm from Akron; there are more than a few suburbs as well. Metropolitan area of Akron touches Metropolitan area of Cleveland. Cleveland does have one suburb with high rises that is actually denser than parts of the city proper. Lakewood, OH fits the list.
