Would smog even persist when it has plenty of open space to dissipate to?
Could be a horrid mix of both?
Would that be smand?
Or is it sanog?
I think the boroughs are all considered seperate municipalities (I could be wrong) so if that's true you could kind of say Manhattan is a city.
No. They're subdivisions of the City of New York.
I think they're in seperate counties.
They are. That has nothing to do with the city limits.
yeah but wouldn't the administration be different and in that case they are somewhat seperate cities?
My favorite island city is Singapore, clearly superior to smelly Manhatten that stinks of pee and can't even support itself.
No. They have some administrative structures unique to that borough (such as the Borough President), but that's hardly the lowest level of administration, nor does it reflect any degree of separation. If it did, you couldn't call Manhattan it's own city, because it would be 12 cities, for each Community board. In fact, New York is far more centralized then most metropolitan centers.
On what are you basing this quite ridiculous claim, might I ask?
Well, for one, Manhattan can't produce enough food to feed its own population.
Because Bast only pick the top three from an article on island cities.
Anyway, the article only deals with islands which are entirely urban. So I guess that's why Singapore or Hong Kong isn't included.
Just you wait, in 2050 Utrecht will be the bestest Island City in the world!
