Puzzle# 11 Wordplay: Sister Cities

One of the great things about doing this blog is that I am learning about all kinds of stuff about New York City.  For instance, did you know about the Sister Cities?  Sister Cities are global partnerships between like cities throughout the world.  I find this to be fascinating stuff.  Do you know how many Sister Cities New York City has?  Two?  Four?  Try ten!  Yes world, we really are that cool.  I mean everyone wants to be our Sister City.  Ten is also a perfect number of answers for a puzzle, dontcha know, and I have stepped up and filled the Sister Cities of New York City puzzling void, ’cause that’s what I do.  Once again we will go the cryptic clue route.  If you need a list of New York’s Sister Cities to help you, I’m sure you can find them somewhere.  Again look for all kinds of wordplay within the clues, and the number of letters per word of each answer will follow the clues in parenthesis.  Happy puzzling!
