As we all should know, the NYC metropolitan area consists of the Tri State area. However, the city of NYC has all the attributes for a metropolitan area.

I see what Ur saying, but nearly all of the major cities. The closest suburbs are considered part of the city-proper.

NYC is a metropolis within a metropolis, it pionerred the idea of metropolitan planning when it annexed its surrounding suburbs, which were big cities in their own right. NYC today is not really a metropolis to the extent that some other metros are, and let me explain. NYC comprises 8+ mil of the 18+mil metro, thats just under 50% of the metropolitan area. while a city like Miami comprises only 400K of it's 5.5mil metro thats only just over 7% of the metropolitan area, so Miami is more metropolitan(not to be confused with "urban" or "cosmopolitan") than NYC because alot more of it is outside the city limits. I think once a city gets to 25% or less of a metropolitan area, it enters a new phase in developement. Philly just recently reached this threshold, and I believe LA is around it to. Cities like DC, Boston, San Francisco, Dallas, Atlanta, and Miami are very metropolitan, while cities like Houston, San Antonio, Jacksonville, NYC, San Diego, and Phoenix are more city oriented places, by their share of city proper vs metro population. Again, this has nothing to do with urbanity, just another way to look at urban areas.
