A style of clothing typically worn by young adults who usually live in the city. However, someone who doesn't live in the city may have a "city style." Most clothes categorized as city include, torn up jeans, slouchy boots, button-down shirts, hats (such as berets), a lot of dangly jewelry. Most color tones include, black, silver, grey, navy blue (mostly darker colors). Also many city people are more artsy and would usually be seen by themselves in a coffee shop reading a book or typing on a laptop. They are witty, but also very quiet when talking to other people. They also portray haircuts such as short, choppy hair.
Girl, you look city in that outfit.

A nickname used for New York City. New York City is according to most sources – The Greatest City in the World and/or the Capital of the World. The only other city that may have claim over the nickname "The City" is London and possibly Tokyo. That being said, it is widely accepted that New York City is indeed "The City" to which every other city compares itself. Los Angeles is not "The City", Paris is not "The City", Rome is not "The City", Chicago is definitely NOT "The City" and San Francisco is definitely NOT "The City".
This is the hierarchy of cities:

Tier 1a: New York City – "The City", London and Tokyo
Tier 1b: Paris, Rome, Hong Kong

Tier 2a: Los Angeles, Beijing, Shanghai
Tier 2b: San Francisco, Chicago, Miami

Short for New York City. Since New York is the only real city in America, it can be referred to with a capital "C".

If used within the 5 buroughs it typically means Manhattan. If outside the 5 buroughs, it refers to any of the 5 buroughs or all of them collectively.

I guess if you live in or around a city, to you that is THE city. And where I live, the Bay Area, San Francisco is THE city. Not Oakland, not San Jose, not Foster City (even though it has "city" in its name), but San Francisco. And no one I know here calls it "Frisco"
Guy 1: hey I'm going into the city this Saturday, wanna come?

Guy 2: depends. what city?

Guy 1: San Francisco dumfuck! What did you think I ment, Boise fucking Idaho???

Guy 2: you could have been talking about San Jose...
