I always thought Far Rockaway had the unofficial title of "The 6th Borough" since it's separated from the rest of Queens and it's really it's own place. From Far Rockaway to the rest of Queens you have to pass through eith Nassau County (Long Island) or Brooklyn.

I think it's time Hoboken considers annexing Manhattan. It would be a good aquisition. It would bring in some extra cash, and some good restaurants ta boot. Just so long as it's not a package deal. The last thing NJ needs is those other boroughs.

If I pay a lot of property taxes to the state of NY, can I say I live there? Pretty please!

No.. you don't... it's called Cross-Bay Blvd. and it runs from Far Rock right up through the rest of Queens.

Paragraph 1: hilarious! priceless! And I wouldn't put it past Hoboken to do this, even if as a publicity stunt.

Paragraph 2: well, OK. But you have to take back that remark about the other boroughs.

Hehe.

Just messing around. I like many parts of the other boroughs.
I take the Jersey jokes pretty lightheartedly. I hope nobody gets bent out of shape over my jokes.
The second paragraph was in response to an earlier post where someone said that she hates when NJ people say they are from NY.
Personally, I am proud of being from Jersey and would never say I was from NY. I may tell people I own a home in NY, but if asked where I am from, I always say NJ.
But I just found it funny that that poster doesn't have better things to worry about than people falsely claiming to be NYers.

Default Sixth borough?

If New York were to incorporate a sixth borough, which of the above would you like it to be, if you have an opinion. Also, along with the potential borough's name, is the ranking the city would ascent to on this list should that entity be made a borough of New York: 1 Mumbai 13,922,125 2 Shanghai 13,831,900 3 Mod cut: copyright violation
