Well, that's what's in the specification in the wiki. But NYC is currently
mapped as level 8 in OSM.

Although now that I think about it, NYC does seem more functionally
equivalent to an independent city like Baltimore or the various cities in
Virginia. However, the counties still exist as purely geographical entities
and shouldn't be left out.
