Just pick up your bags and move to NYC. Problem solved. Then you don't need to waste any time on city-data explaining your conspiracy theories. Plus you'll be too busy with all the stuff to do in NYC.
There is enough going on in the Philly area that NYC isnt even on the radar screen. Apparently the same cant be said for Bal and DC since they need each other to rely on as to appear important.

Theres metro Washington DC and there is metro Baltimore. Singularly they are lost, put a little spin on it, wrap em up pin a bow tie on it and we'll say we're the 4th largest in the country.Who cares if theres 5,000 sq. miles of undeveloped land mixed in.
Regardless, as I've said before, take away all the far end suburbs from DC/Baltimore, the CSA metro only loses about 100k or 150k. The majority of the population is in close proximity to DC/Baltimore. This leaves DC/Baltimore still in 4th place.

But in MSA metro terms, I don't disagree one bit that DC and Baltimore are two different metros. However, there are three places that come into mind that the CSA metro should take priority over the MSA. These areas are DC/Baltimore, SF/Oakland/San Jose, and Dallas/Ft. Worth. Actually, Dallas and Fort Worth are considered MSAs.

If you are really serious about your opinion, then your time is better spent as a lobbyist in DC encouraging the Census Bureau to come up with new guidelines. If you’re not willing to move to DC as a lobbyist, then make it easy on yourself by either accepting that the Philly CSA is not the 4th largest, or move to NYC and then easily claim to be the largest metro in the US.

And how LA Metro is smaller than NYC and Chicagoland and they call us Sprawled.
