Yeah, it's definitely not the primate city. There is no primate city in the U.S. because things are so decentralized and the country is so huge and vast.

You could say NYC is the primate city for the Northeast. Seattle the primate city for the PNW. LA the primate city for California. Atlanta for the South. Chicago the Midwest, etc.

Not sure we could even claim that title since Boston has always been known and is recognized by most New Englanders as the "primate city"(whatever that is) of New England.Unless you somehow separate New England from the rest of the Northeast.
