It's a metropolitan area. The outlying suburbs weren't settled first, the city was, and the outlying areas were second.

Bergen County, Hudson County, etc... all the cities surrounding NYC are satellite cities that spawned after the major city grew.

If the borders and boundaries were drawn so precise, then why is there such a huge contingent of Rangers fans in New Jersey? The Rangers don't represent the area? Apparently they do.

The New York Giants and Jets represent the tri-state area as well. As do the Yankees and Mets. As do the Knicks.

Because there are other markets in between doesn't make it not so.

The Leafs represent ONLY the city of Toronto? They represent Toronto and the greater area. All the satellite cities surrounding it. The province of Ontario.
