The meaning of this thread will be obvious by the examples I give:

Cincinnati: airport in Kentucky

New York: football stadium in New Jersey

Kansas City: most exclusive suburbs in Kansas

Tough to come up, but......are there others?

NYC obviously has the majority of its metropolitan area in northern New Jersey.

Most of NJ's (NYC Metro Area) retirees are in Florida, but NJ has a ton of retirees as it is.

Philadelphia obviously has part of its metropolitan area in southern New Jersey.

Washington D.C. has its metro area in two different states Maryland and northern Virginia, because Washington D.C. is a district, which is just the city itself and not a state, so its metro area obviously had to sprawl somewhere.

Part of St. Louis' metro area is in Illinois, because it was built too close to the Missouri/Illinois border.

Kansas City is in Kansas but also Missouri.
