I decided against putting "twin" cities on the list (MSP or DFW) and specifically wanted to put satellite/neighboring cities that are sizably smaller than their core cities. I also made sure to include cities that are within the same metro area. Thoughts?
To me they are, but if I lived in Scottsdale, I would probably just say "Phoenix." Newark I wouldn't say "New York City", that's definitely cheating and Long Beach I wouldn't say "LA", unless it's on a broad scope like if I'm home for Christmas dinner I'd say "yeah, I live way out there in LA, grandma." Otherwise, no.

Newark and Oakland, Yes! Long Beach, kinda on the fence on that one. Scottsdale I just view as a huge suburb for some reason...
