I think Lancaster is a little bit more towards Baltimore, the new trend now is to move out of the ci to PA cheaper homes!!

I think Baltimore is about the exact same distance as Philadelphia at about 80 miles. Oddly that is about the exact Distance Baltimore is from Philadelphia

Some people from Lancaster commute to the Baltimore area and the Philadelphia area but are a minority to either

I would not call Lancaster a sister city to either city though

I agree, Lancaster is a little too far to be considered a sibling of either Philly or Bmore. Baltimore's smaller sibling in PA would most definitely be York. There's a ton of Baltimore transplants who live in York, but still work in Baltimore. Interstate 83 links them and a few years ago, the mayor of York expressed interest in eventually extending Baltimore's light rail up to there (very unlikely this will happen anytime soon).

I honestly don't see what's wrong in saying it. Fort Worth is the smaller sibling of Dallas. So what. Doesn't demean Fort Worth to me.

But SF is the undisputed main city/big city of the region, as most Bay Area residents would agree (though SJ is the undisuted center of the South Bay, and Oakland the center of the East Bay). San Jose was not much more than a farming town until silicon valley took off, while SF had already been a major city for a century. And when you're dealing with cities as large as SF and SJ, a difference of 150,000 doesnt mean much anyways. Then there's the fact that city proper populations don't tell the whole story, but rather metros do. The SF MSA has 4.5 million people vs. 1.8 million in SJs MSA. Of course the two should be combined, but thats another topic.
