I think it is supposed to be Lebanon, New Hampshire. There is no Lebanon, Vermont.

I'm pretty sure the Providence Metro Area doesn't cover Westerly, RI, so it shouldn't be 100, but rather 98 or so

"Metropolitan areas" according to the U.S. Census Bureau go by county border lines, which take in wildly varying distances into the boondocks, depending on the random size that a government established as a county border centuries ago.

I would nominate this, but it goes 5 answers over the 100 maximum for eligible quizzes.

I did not expect Salisbury, MD to appear in this quiz. Didn't even realize it's metropolitan area expands past MD borders! Great Quiz!
