I thought they were invited during the amalgamation process, but said 'no'. Btw, North York, East York, Scarborough, and Etobicoke weren't part of Toronto either until amalgamation. They were bedroom communities of Toronto, just like Mississauga.

Yes, but before the formation of 'metropolitan Toronto', they were all separate. I distinctly remember a NYPD and NYFD and the NY in this instance stood for North York.

That's not true. It was the intention that all the suburbs/bedroom communities of Toronto would merge and become part of Toronto. Mississauga wanted to remain independent.

I took this photo just the other day. In the aerial below, you can see the bridge from where I took it.

La defense is Suburban but not really since it is very close to central Paris. It is not however the biggest business area, this is a low rise area around central Paris.

The skyline below is Suburban but the foreground is Paris.

The view is towards the southwest. Newark is northwest of Jersey City and not in the picture.

No, only the six boroughs were ever considered for amalgamation. North York and the other boroughs had their own fire departments, but they all were policed by the Metropolitan Toronto Police Force since 1957.

Thanks, I knew North York had its own police department but couldn't remember how far back I had to go.

LOL, no. Why would you? Just because SJ has more people within arbitrary city limits? The reason for that by the way, is because SJ has annexed tons of neighboring towns over the decades, which is something SF could never do because of geographic constraints. If you expanded SF's borders to match SJ's, it would have far more people within them, because the area around SF is denser/more populated. Not to mention SF city-proper was far more populated than SJ for the majority of it's history. SJ was only a small agricultural city 50 years ago while SF had already been long established as a primary city of the west coast (and was the primary city, up until the 1920s). Further more, SF has the larger job base and economy, a much larger downtown (90 million square feet of office space in downtown SF vs. 10 million in downtown SJ), and more commuters coming in daily. In fact, SJ loses 5% of it's population to suburban job centers every week day, whereas SF gains 200,000+ people. And if you're thinking of SF tech workers going south to work, you should know that the number of them has been greatly exaggerated by the media, and they actually make up a small fraction of SF's work force. 85% of workers who live in SF work within SF city-proper.

Oakland is a twin city with SF, not a suburb. Of course SF has always been bigger, but Oakland acts as a secondary CBD to SF, and 80% of workers living in Oakland work in Oakland. Most of the 200,000 people commuting daily to SF come from the suburbs (as do most of the 40,000 commuters who go to Oakland).

When it comes to actual suburban skylines, the Bay Area doesn't have much going on.
