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.

Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Milwaukee is the hidden jewel of the Upper Midwest, and an urban thug's paradise.
After thugging around the North Shore, we hit up The City for some quality bbq at J.T. Bones.

What natives of the Bay Area use to refer to San Francisco. All other cities have nothing on San Francisco and San Francisco is the only one that earns the title of "The City" (check the Warriors jerseys). Also can be refered to as the sco, 415 or Frisco, but only by natives. When people other than Natives call San Francisco by these names its a sign of disrespect, as they obviously really don't know what they're talking about by the context it tends to be used in.
1. "I'm from the sco beezies, you better respect that!"
2. Phone convo. better two kids that live in Marin:
Kid 1: "Let's hang out in the city this weekend."
Kid 2: "Sounds good, it's not like we'll have an issue paying the fucking $5 bridge toll to get there."

Nickname for San Francisco. Sometimes also called "San Fran", but the local residents hate it when someone refers to it as "'Frisco". A wonderful city for all, with steep hilly streets, among other things.
Jeremy: Let's check out The City and see Lombard Street. It's the Crookedest Street in the World. After that we can get on a ferry and visit Alcatraz. Then we can have a pizza.

Sam: Alright! Let's go!

An urban area with entertainment and a downtown. Different place depending on where youl ive, if you live in NY or NJ the city means Manhttan, if you live in the Bay Area it means San Fran or Oakland. If you live in Illinois you'd prolly call Chicago the city.
I'm going to the city this weekend
