Given that I just took a blasting in the best of the Midwest thread, I figured I'd just go ahead and ask and hope to hear detailed explanations of cities that could fit into multiple states. Thanks.

Yeah, I'd say so. The ones that come to mind for me are St. Louis, Kansas City, Omaha, Chicago, and NYC. Maybe Memphis too. Mainly ones that are near state lines. I'd also expand this to include not just multiple states, but multiple countries. Detroit and Buffalo in this case would come to mind.

I like to wonder if Mississippi had New Orleans and Memphis in it's borders how much different people would think of it.

Outside of the Northeast id say Kansas City; KC has alot of people on the Kansas side (it seems like its almost equal between MO and KS?)

All other cities have probably around than 10-25% of there metro population in the other state, like St Louis, Memphis, Omaha and Charlotte to name a few. Also all of the Wisconsin towns that are considered to part of the Twin Cities metro are all under 20,000 in population

Definitely Kansas City and St. Louis. Very strange to have the two largest (and only) metro areas in one state on the border of other states.

In addition, Jacksonville, Florida maybe? Pretty close to Southern Georgia and I would imagine the areas would be pretty similar.

Columbia has a metro area with Boone and Howard counties.

Cape Girardeau has a 3 county Metro Area that spans 2 states, but I would hardly count it as a metro area. Same goes for Columbia.
