What is the definition of a Urburb? What are your cities urburbs

Wikipedia defines alot of cities and towns that I count as traditional suburbs as urburbs(Inner Suburbs).

Atlanta:
College Park
East Point
Hapeville
Decatur
Avondale Estates

What are the urburbs of your city?

Definition of urburb: made up word that means nothing?

If you want to refer to an inner suburb why not do just refer to it as such.

I was a bit confused too. It sounded like a stutter.

If you want it to be one word maybe "innerburb" would be a better neologism.

I always thought of an urburb as being a city that's not the core city of a metro, but is too "urban" to be considered a suburb. Places like Jersey City, Yonkers, Cambridge, maybe Bethesda, etc. Is that wrong?

I'd never heard of that term before, but I like it. I can see how those cities you listed are urburbs of Atlanta. And I like urburbs, especially Decatur.

I don't think there are any urburbs in all of Tennessee. Tennessee's largest cities, Memphis and Nashville, long ago annexed former suburbs that would today be urburbs.

Cleveland:
Lakewood
Euclid
Cleveland Heights
East Cleveland
Shaker Heights
Brookyln
Garfield Heights
Fairview Park
Brook Park

I guess those are the cities that border the city. A couple other border as well, though I am not really sure what an Urburb REALLY is

Tennessee has the tiny towns act which says you can't start a new town within (I think) 10 miles of an existing town. There are a few exceptions, but generally you can tell the towns apart.

My understanding of Decatur, it wasn't founded as a suburb, it was its own city with its own economy. Same with Marietta. Today they function as burb because Atlanta's suburbs have engulfed them, but they weren't originally envisioned to be suburbs.

New York City: (Alphabetized)

Downtown Brooklyn
Downtown Jamaica
Elizabeth
Flushing
Garden City
Hempstead
Jersey City
Long Island City
Mount Vernon
Newark
North Shore of Staten Island
Paterson
Trenton
White Plains
Yonkers

5 of them are actually in NYC city limits, they aren't part of the city's "core", some are actually further away than the separate cities.
