This thread is about cities legal borders butting up to states. Hence Chicago-Indiana.

Some posters have noted that Chicago borders Indiana. Chicago, Cook Co., and IL share a border road with Hammond, Lake Co., IN. All you need to do is cross this street, State Line Rd., and you leave one and enter the other.

First of all I am the OP. As I stated, this thread is exclusive to city limits. Also this isn't about connection, this is about being the city proper bordering another state. I think you are missing the point of the thread.

And just FYI I live in Chicago and have lived here for 30+ years, so I am well aware how connected Chicago is to Wisconsin, but you are missing the point of this thread entirely.

That's gotta be so weird. That let's say your house is right on that road, and your neighbor's across the street are in another state. For example, next year when recreational marijuana is legal in Illinois, if you live on the Indiana side you can just cross the street smoke up out in the open and it be legal, but then cross the street and it's illegal when you go back to Indiana? I find that so weird.

Conversely, on the Chicago side you can step right across the street and get fireworks, discounts goods/lower taxes on almost everything, gambling, sports betting.... It would actually be interesting to live over there. It's an interesting dynamic as you have an expensive, world class city on one side, and basically a free for all haven for everything you can't get in Chicago/Illinois all on the other side. Don't think many other major cities have this advantage. At least comparing to NYC/LA/SF

I think Detroit, Buffalo and San Diego deserve honorable mention, since they border regions not included in their respective states. El Paso has been mentioned already

Here is one out of left-field. Lewiston, Idaho and Clarkston, WA border each other on the confluence of the Clearwater and Snake Rivers. These are the two closest cities between WA and ID, (just a bridge apart) though Post Falls, ID up north is a close 2nd.

Cincinnati's been mentioned, but it's the one that never registered with me much until I had to start travelling for work.
It was interesting to me that so much of the metro is in Kentucky.
I guess I always envisioned it being more solidly "northern" (I'm from the south).
