look up any word, like colorful friendship:
obviously, many people call their respective cities "the city" but there is only one CITY: Manhattan.

Brooklyn is not the city, Queens is not the city, the Bronx is not the city & Staten Island is NOT the city.

Only Manhattan is the City.
It is the greatest city on earth.
New York City is the City.
We're going to the City tomorrow, are you coming?

She lives in the City? I thought she lived in Brooklyn.
