In about 5 years, housing in the Phoenix area will be very expensive, on par with Florida, California.......
for the Pelasgians, too, were a Greek nation originally from the Peloponnesus
The Roman Antiquities of Dionysius of Halicarnassus
Macedonia, of course, is a part of Greece". Strabo, VII, Frg. 9

For example they list:
For NYC you have the MSA and then separate Metro divisions.
New York-Northern New Jersey-Long Island, NY-NJ-PA
New York-Wayne-White Plains, NY-NJ
Long Island, NY
For LA they list the MSA and then break out Orange County separately but not LA County separately
Los Angeles-Long Beach-Santa Ana, CA
Anaheim-Santa Ana, CA
Weird comparisons IMO.
