Some of the canals act as man-made borders. Driving around central Broward County, around Lauderhill, you cross various canals that may lead into neighborhing towns like Plantation, Sunrise, and Tamarac, or into CDP's like Roosevelt Park, and Boulevard Gardens. But even with the canals, all those areas are seamless. Same apartments, same demographics, same character. You don't when you enter Fort Lauderdale.

DC and MoCo practically share Friendship Heights. The part of the neighborhood that extends into the Maryland side is known as Friendship Village.

Isnt that only because of bodies of water tho?

SF and Oakland have no undeveloped between them but what separates them is the Bay.

This thread was made for Lexington, all of suburbs are still in the city proper for the most part thats why we have a city of 300k people and a tiny downtown.

Maybe the question should be which cities don't seemlessly transition into their principal city?

Camden Upper Darby and Milbourne all have physical barriers forming their borders with the city (The Delaware and Cobbs Creek) which makes them feel sort of discontinuous from the parts of the city they border IMO, even though they are very urban. Cheltenham's border is just a street, but its less dense than the others as well.
