The state of New Jersey's tallest buildings are located in JC, as are many prominent financial and administrative institutions, enough so that JC is making a strong case of having surpassed Newark, the traditional secondary city of the metro and leader of the state. JC certainly isn't Yonkers or Nassau County or Greenwich in that regard. It's also too close to be an edge city or even a satellite city, imo, but I understand the hesitance to elevate JC above suburb status, given NYC's dominance.
JC is to NY what Arlington is to DC, ostensibly an extension of the core, but separated by a river and state border. Cambridge would be analogous were it not for the fact that itís in the same state and having Harvard and MIT give the city itís own gravity.
