From Wikitravel:Votes for deletion

  • Piraeus - already created as a district of Athens: Athens/Piraeus Pjamescowie 05:53, 26 Apr 2005 (EDT)
    • Then merge and redirect instead of deleting. Jpatokal 06:44, 26 Apr 2005 (EDT)
    • Both pages appear to still exist. Technically, Piraeus appears to be its own city, but in practice I suspect most travelers would consider it a suburb of Athens (it's just 9 km away). Opinions? Jpatokal 04:01, 21 May 2005 (EDT)
      • I'm broadly in favour of treating nearby towns as suburbs of famous cities rather than independent cities when there's a question about it. (Particularly when they share metropolitian infrastructure like public transport -- I don't know if that applies in this case.) It seems more likely to serve the traveller: many more will start at the big city and be looking for things to do in that city than will be looking for the suburbs/satellite cities specifically. My vote (without knowing the area) is merge Piraeus into Athens/Piraeus and redirect. Hypatia 21:49, 19 Jun 2005 (EDT)
