^ I was using the phrase "cute little boutique cities" in reference to the fact that Boston, DC, and SF all have very small city proper limits relative to their metro areas. Thus, when urban stats of their city propers are used in comparison to other cities, like Philly, whose municipal limits include FAR more "outer neighborhood" kinda areas that tend to be less urban than core areas, we aren't really looking at an apples-to-apples comparison.
