i've seen other forums related to this, but i wanted to add in my two cents

i have no idea why Hudson County is NJ and not part of NYC.. the whole county is a proper NYC Bridge-n-Tunnel outerborough (minus the political affiliation of being in another state.. and being able to make right turns at red lights)..

the streetscape, old row houses, immigrant culture, bodegas, style of prewar apt buildings, and even the gentrification patterns reminds me of some reflected Queens, just west of Manhattan instead of east of Manhattan

Well the biggest problem is that unlike Brooklyn/Queens/Staten Island/The Bronx, they're in a separate state, and the only way they would join is that if a separate city-state was formed. Even if Camden/Gloucester/Pennsauken in South Jersey gentrified fully, would they want to be part of Philadelphia? Cambridge, Somerville, Brookline, or Chelsea to Boston? Or Arlington county, VA to be part of DC despite being part of the District at one point? I'll bet that the last two options are the only one that seems feasible at this point, with MAYBE a "Greater Boston" consolidation a la Greater London the most likely method for Boston. A better topic could have been "Which of these cities are most likely to annex these adjoining municipalities as described?"

You can't have a city in 2 separate states. You'd have to split off Hudson County into NY state as well.

A bigger question is why all five boroughs form a single city. Residents might be better off in NYC was broken up.

Yea, who doesn’t want duplicative services and competing administrations. Sounds like a dream!
