And a majority of native NYers who do not live in Manhattan, refer to a trip to Manhattan as "going into the city".

I've lived in Queens my whole life and that's the way I refer to it.

When I go into Nassau County, I'm going "out to the Island".

Brooklyn and Queens may be on the same rock as Nassau and Suffolk, but they are not commonly refered to as Long Island.
