What would happen in the future, if cities were allowed to get bigger by annexing more land? What's your opinion on this?

Which city would you like for them to be redrawn, by annexing another part or have their borders redrawn? What do you think? Would you like it better? Does it make more sense? You can even have a city expand to a part of another state if you want.

I would love for Washington DC to annex Alexandria and Arlington. That's over 1 million people in 100 square miles.

Cambridge is inner city Boston.

Staten Island shouldn't be in New York City.

Kansas City is the poster child for seemingly illogical annexations.

Can you elaborate? I'm not really familiar with KC.

That would put D.C third in population density behind NYC and San Francisco right ?

No. Boston, Miami, Chicago and Philadelphia would still all be more dense then the new D.C.

Boston should annex Brookline. Cambridge has its identity and contributes as much to Boston as Boston does to Cambridge. Brookline, however, exists solely to take money out of Boston.
