Talk:New York

From Wikitravel
Jump to: navigation, search

Why does London go straight to London and New York goes to this? Can´t New York state be linked to at the top of the New York page? Similarly, I think far more people are interested in Buenos Aires the city rather than Buenos Aires province. Are they simply not as major as London? London Ontario is pretty cool too . . .

Take a look at Wikitravel:Disambiguation pages which should explain our thinking on places with the same name... these things usually involved a lot of debating, so feel free to disagree and argue for a change! I think the general consensus on New York city/state was that it was more vague to international travellers than the London/London issue (for example, I had no idea there was another London until I moved to Montreal!) Try to keep in mind that it's not a coolness factor, or even size, but trying to imagine all the different travellers coming from all over the world (see the Hyderabad discussion for another example-- how many people from London Ont. spend much time thinking about Hyderabad Pakistan ;-)).
