The Charles Barkley of cities

"While Jerusalem retains, at least in technical terms, its status as Israel’s largest city, Tel Aviv is clearly the country’s largest metropolitan area. Where Jerusalem is busy annexing whatever it can, Greater Tel Aviv is a hodgepodge of technically separate cities between which there is little realistic distinction. But even at that, Tel Aviv is deceptively small. While it feels big it is actually just playing bigger than it is: the Charles Barkley of cities."
