Another quiz that took me way too long to make. I used a program to make the list and place the dots, so I'm pretty sure they are correct.

It may seem like there are "missing" cities, but there are not. For instance, Pittsburgh doesn't appear because it is smaller than Cleveland. But Cleveland also doesn't appear because it is smaller than Detroit. So a large blank space is created.

Fantastic, I was going to ask you how you worked out the data and then placed the dots! How does the program for placing the dots work and can it be used for other maps? I hope to see continental versions etc soon!

But why does it do that there, and not, say, in southern Texas? Similar looking area has 6 cities listed, but nothing for Philly, Washington, Baltimore? I smell a glitch.

@bakainu The "glitch" may be that Texan bigger cities are quite alone, but in the northeast they are closer together.

I think bakainu is right. If nothing else, there seems to be inconsistency in the distance cutoff. Corpus Christi and Laredo are closer than 200 km. Cleveland-Pittsburgh is farther than Corpus-Laredo unless maybe your using an edge to edge measure rather than center to center.

Hard to say. Hilo is a CDP and not an incorporated city. I think I'm going to leave it out for now.

I love how howering over the dots afterwards shows you the name of the city. This site is teaching me so much about those obscure little towns you never hear about on the other side of the pond.

I believe Peoria, IL needs to be on this list. We are 170 miles from both Chicago and St. Louis (or 270 km) and there isn't any cities around us that are bigger. Closest is Davenport, Iowa but it's not quite as populous.

I just saw that Springfield's population really jumped in the past decade, so depending on what numbers you are using, it could be Springfield that pushes Peoria off of the list.

Aurora, IL is the city that pushes Peoria off.

Forgot about Aurora. All of us downstate folks simply consider everything north of I-80 as Chicago anyway.

We've traveled all around the East Coast, but for some reason we've never made it to the Carolinas or Delaware. I guess we'll have to make a special trip to those states someday. We're currently at 41 states visited.

I believe Sault Ste Marie is in Ontario. However, it is just about on the border. I am not sure whether that counts.

There is one in Michigan and one in Ontario, right across the river from each other. It counts.

The bigger one is in Ontario, but there is a college on Michigan's side. Being from Michigan, was surprised to find both SSM and Marquette on the list but not Grand Rapids. Is Milwaukee the city that pushes it off?

Some quizzes on this site include San Jose as part of the San Francisco Bay area. I'm glad it's getting recognition on its own.

I was convinced that Mobile and New Orleans were closer than 200 km, and that some of those cities in southern Texas were as well, but I looked and they're all just over 200 km apart. Well I'll be John Brown.
