@DANNYY,

FYI,

You forgot to place Seattle/Vancouver border along with this topic!

Another geographic similarity it has with two other major cities would be with Houston & Philadelphia;
Detroit- Southeast, MI
Houston- Southeast, TX
Philadelphia- Southeast, PA
You forgot too,

New York City - Southeast, NY
New Orleans - Southeast, LA
Miami - Southeast, FL
Milwaukee - Southeast, WI

Well, I only live a four hour drive from Juarez which back in the day many people said it was an interesting place to visit and go shopping but for at least the past 4-5 years it's an absolute No-Go place, far too dangerous. Even that short section of I-10 in El Paso gives a window into how bad it is there across the Rio Grande.

They are not adjacent border cities like the rest listed.

Buffalo and Toronto aren't adjacent.

Well yeah that's true but Buffalo is right on the Canadian border and is only a 1.5 hour drive to Toronto and they have mostly a contiguous urban/suburban corridor in between. Neither Seattle nor Vancouver are on the border and are 3 hours apart.

Yep, it's more like Buffalo/Niagara Region, rather than Buffalo/Toronto!

Or you could say the Buffalo/Golden Horseshoe region for better clarification.

Can Buffalo/Toronto really be in this category?

Depending on how you word the combined area, it could be. If the combination I mentioned above is used, there are about 10 million+ people within that combined area. That's not including another 1 million+ people metro in Rochester that is adjacent to the Buffalo metro.
