    jfronga, it's those jurisdictional boundaries that allow suburban residents to escape paying a fair share of the costs associated with running the central city without which the suburbs would not prosper.  The problem became especially acute in the latter half of the 20th century as it was precisely the people best able to pay taxes that crossed that jurisdictional line.
