Actually JC and Newark don't share a border; the bike path (which is in bad shape) goes through Kearny. Both Newark and Jersey City are cities in their own right, but Jersey City has areas (near the various PATH stops) which are much more strongly connected to NYC than Newark is.

I suppose but neither do Queens,Brooklyn , Bronx and SI with Manhattan and they are obviously all one area. Speaking on behalf of my own experience growing up around the Westside /Greenville neighborhood we always felt much more ties to Newark than we ever did NYC. I guess its all subjective.

New Rochelle is very reminiscent of ungentrified parts of Brooklyn.

I agree with the assessment that Bronxville seems like the city. Of course, it's entirely suburban in nature, but the people definitely remind me of Manhattanites. Has a certain je ne sais quoi/NY panache.
