San Diego is a separate metro than LA, and no you cannot add Philly with NY either. SF/SJ make up one region, share amenities and sports teams/venues.

So southern California isn't a region? Also San Jose is a seperate metro from San Francisco (San Jose-Sunnyvale-Santa Clara).


This is just the latest example of how people have to append everything within San Francisco's orbit to it to try and pass it off as one unified thing to inflate it's importance. MSA/CSA wise, San Diego is not likely to catch San Francisco, but if we're just talking cities than SD already has nearly double the population in seven times the area, so I'm pretty sure SD will pass SF in every economic/wealth indicator soon.

No. Southern California is a small country.

The Bay Area is a CSA with combined cross commuting patterns and shared amenities throughout. Stop getting off topic, all I said was that I combined SJ with SF as a "city/metro".

When you are proved wrong for the millionth time; you result to name calling for the millionth time.

Buffalo is nothing like Fresno, what an insult to Buffalo. Fresno does not have professional major league sports either. No to FresNO.

Ok, but under your latest definition San Jose still wouldn't be part of this area because it's not connected to the BART, right?

San Jose is connected to the East Bay and North Bay all the way to Sacramento by way of the Capitol Corridor

San Jose is connected all the way up the SF Peninsula to many cities by way of Caltrain.

East Coast Cities I can't think of equivalents for:
Charleston
Savannah
Philadelphia

West Coast Cities I can't think of equivalents for:
Vancouver
This looks pretty good to me. For Philly, if forced to pick, I'd say the combo of San Francisco and Oakland.
