Actually Empire City is in Damansara, City of Petaling Jaya, State of Selangor... totally detached from Kuala Lumpur geographically...

poor many cities in Selangor state(esp within Klang valley area) like Shah Alam, Petaling Jaya, Subang Jaya, Puchong, Klang, Putrajaya/Cyberjaya etc... all seem neglected here by Malaysian ssc netizens and we all just labelled them as Kuala Lumpur Greater while some of them really have some nice skylines/cityscapes...

We should be more like Canadians where they acknowledge Missisauga separately from Toronto...

it actually is... am refering to the name of the city itself where we Malaysians used to forgo... instead of Empire City-Petaling Jaya, we will just call it Empire City-Kuala Lumpur when talking to foreigner just for the sake of standard or something...

As a result, these cities/suburbans in KL greater are quite alienated here in ssc (even in local forum) despite being no different than what Santa Fe is to the Mexico City...

I personally consider Norfolk to be suburban, but not a suburb of any city in particular.

Also, the picture is not presented as mine, but rather as Bill Dickinson's. But, yeah, next time I'll quote your post. It does sound easier than going to fetch the BBCode myself.

Norfolk is a port... its hard to argue it being suburban to anything.

Perhaps we should have a rule book to follow when deciding whether a city is suburban?

And Norfolk is suburban?

Wikipedia states on the two cities' seperate articles that Norfolk is "considered to be the historic, urban, financial, and cultural center of the region" while Virginia Beach is "mostly suburban in character".

The only thing even slightly urban about Virginia Beach are it's highrises.

I'm not trying to bash you or your opinions, all I'm saying is that Virginia beach is suburban while neighboring Norfolk is not.

And as for the rule book, that might be a bit problematic because the definition of a suburb varies from person to person.
