Hi,

That's a pretty broad definition, covering some far-out places, but that's what it is today. People coming in from 2 hours away every morning. You omitted Bergen and Passaic Counties in NJ.

Yes, believe it or not, the NY Metro Area covers a huge swath of geography and contains roughly 20 million people. Some people commute 90-120 minutes out just to work in New York City. It's pretty amazing.
