Re: Oklahoma Collection - would the word "city" be keyed?

Classification: Query
Would the word "city" be keyed or ignored in the Birthplace field? I have an image (reviewing it) where the interviewee has "New York City, New York" listed as his birthplace. Would it properly be keyed as:
New York City, New York
by keying as seen
OR
New York, New York
by dropping the "city" as we do the "county?"

I so seldom run across this that I have forgotten, and didn't know if there were specific rules for this project, anyway, about this. Have hunted for the correct answer, with no success...
