How can I characterize locations in the NY/NJ area by urban/suburban?

I have about 400 address in the NY/NJ metro area, and I'd like to characterize each address as urban or suburban based on some standard definition. What is a good way to do this? I'm willing to use a paid service to code my addresses.

I've tried looking at Metropolitan and Micropolitan Statistical Areas and they are not quite granualr enough. By some definitions, including MSA, *all* locations within a big radius of NYC will be considered urban, but I'd like to try to separate these out somehow.
