Manhattan! If one of you Queens or Brooklyn boy's ever told anyone you were from the city, you would received the strangest of looks.
If you live in Queens, The Bronx, Brooklyn, or Staten Island, you are not from "The City".

Colloquialism for the area of London around Bank tube station. Lots of large international banks and law firms centre round there. So called because the area comprised the actual "City of London" administrative area."

Populated by vile overpaid tossarses for the most part.
Jasmine got a job with Linklaters, a law firm in the City. She quit soon after due to the multitudinous tosspots who worked there, braying rugby-shirted fratboys to a man.

Used to refer to the largest city in the area generally.
London is an exception, where "the City" (with a capital) is used to refer to a specific area within Central London, also known as the Square Mile. It's the main business district, basically.
US: We're going to the city tonight!
UK: Those damn City workers and their 6 figure salaries.
