What would be the right way to link this article to the article on Bryan-College Station, which already exists and has a reasonable amount of information in it? Would it make sense to get rid of this article, and direct people to that article, or is there a way to link that says that this is a subdestination of that one?

Yeah, I think a merge would be appropriate. If I'm wrong, Texugo will likely correct me anyway ;) --Peter Talk 18:56, 20 April 2008 (EDT)
Or wait a second, we've got a Bryan article—which means likely content overlap. I don't know anything about this area, so I'll refrain from passing judgment, but it looks like there are two options: sort content into the two city articles, and change Bryan-College Station into a disambiguation page, or merge all content into Bryan-College Station and redirect the two twin city articles there. But I don't know which solution is more useful for the traveler. --Peter Talk 19:07, 20 April 2008 (EDT)
Tough call. The city centers are about 5 miles apart, and though each city has over 50,000 people, hardly anyone who is not a local ever refers to either city individually. I haven't spent enough time there to tell you if both cities have enough potential listings to stand as separate articles. I don't have a problem with merging them for now-- if the sections start getting crowded with listings we can always separate them into two articles later.
