Why has the "new-york-city" keyword been frozen in favor if the redundant "new-york-city-new-york" keyword?  Long ago, it was supposedly decided that, if a city's name includes the state or country, that state or counrty would NOT be repeated, i.e. oklahoma-city, panama-city, etc.  (The exception:  "kansas-city," since part of that city is in Kansas and part is in Missouri.)

All "new-york-city-new-york" keywords should be reinstated to "new-york-city."  The "new-york" keyword should be reserved for parts of the state of New York other than New York City

Hi Phil,

Thanks for your patience with this.

I've looked into the keyword now, there doesn't appear to be a block in place for new-york-city - however the option doesn't appear in the suggestion list (New-York-City does appear but due to formatting this will error).

I have cut a ticket for our data teams to resolve the stale suggestions now, we have also corrected the listings from new-york-city-new-york back into simply new-york-city.

Please allow some time for this to update on all platforms.

Cheers,

Joel
