though Baltimore (260km inland) is not, due to Patapsco River having its
own polygon:

Of course my "xxx km inland" depends on where you define the bay to
begin, I used the US13 crossing at Norfolk.

Not saying that is the measuring stick, and perhaps as a result of this
discussion it needs to be tagged differently, or maybe the physical
geography is different there.

Or maybe we conclude that physical geography doesn't count and what
counts is whether it "feels like" a coastal city ;)

Bye
Frederik
