Does the Mississippi River really flow "through the city center" of Memphis? I thought it formed the western boundary of the city.

Downtown Memphis sits on the Mississippi River, so while it does form the western edge of the state, county, and city, the river also sits near the city center. Memphis technically sits at the confluence of the Mississippi and the Wolf Rivers.
