You're crazy. The metropolitan area of Orlando, Florida has Disneyworld, which is a staple of America and an incredible display of our economic might and hospitality. If the metro stopped for a day, thousands of children would cry. That is the true heart and soul of our great nation.

Are there any other cities within New York's metro that are worth mentioning? Or is New York's metro just pretty much New York?

The City of New York actually makes up less than half the population of its own metro area. In terms of economic effects, we have to include financial services companies and funds in places like southern Connecticut or Jersey City, as well as the millions who live on Long Island east of NYC in various towns. There is a good deal of wealth in northeastern New Jersey, most of which is part of NYC's metro area.
