Mumbai is there now. :) Xi'an and Chongqing don't make the cut.

City is not part of the name of New York. It is often called New York City just to differentiate it from New York state. Same reason Washington is called Washington D.C. although D.C. is not part of the city name- to differentiate from Washington state.

I kindly disagree. As you put it, Washington D.C. is to Washington as New York City is to New York.

from Capitals of the World:

"I just took a day trip to DC and I swear no one, visitors or locals, calls the place "Washington". It can pretty confusing with the state! What surprises me most, though, is that even though we were in the area, and everyone knew exactly which "Washington" was being talked about, everybody used the term "DC" or the rare "Washington, DC".

JetPunk is run by how the locals speak of a term. For example, Guatemala is accepted for Guatemala City because (according to Dan) people say "Guatemala" and rarely does one hear someone add the "city" part to it. 'The contrary, Panama City is only occasionally referred to by Panamanians..."
