I haven't created a metadata page for this article as someone may wish to move it. There are other uses that can be added to city (disambiguation). I thought about urban centre but decided to avoid a US-UK spelling issue. Alternatively, it could live at city. John Stephenson 13:46, 10 October 2010 (UTC)

It seems a bit confused on what it's about. The current title, and the opening definition of popular usage, refer to one meaning, but the reference to the City of London belongs with a different meaning. Peter Jackson 16:59, 28 August 2014 (UTC)
And the defintion on the disambiguation page gives both meanings for this entry, which seems to defeat the object of disambiguation. Peter Jackson 17:01, 28 August 2014 (UTC)
