Abstract: In reviewing Joan Aron’s article on the “New York Interstate Metropolis,” it is easy to see that the theoretical benefits that abound when one contemplates the use of a regional planning body are not so easily realized in practice. However, in an attempt to stimulate regional cooperation among local governments, the Council of Government (COG) concept was developed and then implemented in virtually every metropolitan area (SMSA) in the United States.
