Washington DC isn't in the 50 states. San Juan should count, IMO. Plus it helps fight the ignorance that Puerto Rico isn't part of the US. It may be a territory, and they may have a different legal relationship with the federal government, but the people born there are US citizens and have US passports and everything. It's part of the US.

The City of St. Louis is limited to specific boundaries and cannot annex surrounding areas. It is surrounded by St. Louis County which has a population of over a million. The metro area of St. Louis has nearly three million but it recently dropped out of the top 20 largest cities, due mainly to population loss on the IL side of the river. Metro St. Louis has only lost population in one year - 1980 - but it has slower growth than most metro areas in the US. The area's economy depends heavily on financial services and healthcare.

Detroit's economy has dropped, to say the least, so crime went up, which means people will try to avoid the crime, and the best way to do that is to leave Detroit for some other place, like say, Enterprise, NV, the fastest growing city in the United States, growing at a rate of 639.17%

60 years ago, Detroit was the wealthiest city on earth, per capita. What most people don't realize is that even then, Detroit didn't actually have much in the way of auto plants from the big 3 - most of those facilities were built out in the suburbs.

Norfolk should be accepted for virginia beach because they're basiccly the same city.
+1
level 73
Jul 15, 2013
Or Newport News or Hampton. All part of the same huge metro area. Except that, as the quiz clearly states, they are going by "city proper" populations which means they are only counting population within a defined municipal area. This isn't really a good reflection of the reality of present-day cities, which have often becoming sprawling metro areas in which one "city" bleeds into another completely and the two are more or less inseparable except maybe in terms of government, but there are lots of quizzes on the site that use metro areas so having one that focuses on city proper isn't a bad thing.

Norfolk and Virginia Beach are two very separate cities with two very separate urban centers. They are adjacent, yes, but so are Minneapolis and St. Paul. And it takes at least 30-45 minutes to get from downtown Norfolk to downtown Va Beach. Now if you were to call Norfolk and Portsmouth the same city, you'd have a much better argument.

A 30 minute drive does not impress me after spending a lot of time in Manila, Bangkok, Riyadh, Seoul, Tokyo and Istanbul... each of which can take several hours to drive from one end of the city to the other. 30 minutes is nothing. And it's not like there are some massive forests or huge swaths of farmland separating them. They're the same urban area as far as I'm concerned.

I thought it was a Belgian, but my guess is that San Juan isn't reported in the statistics of largest cities of the US because it isn't a state.

I'm pretty sure Colorado Springs' population growth owes much more to it's booming military/defense and high tech industries than it does to being a college town. The largest school in the US by enrollment is Arizona State. Tempe, meanwhile, only has a population of 160,000 people.

I think the proper names of those cities require "City," unlike New York, Mexico, Guatemala, etc., in which "City" is not part of the actual name, but is added to distinguish the city from the state or country in which it sits. The actual name of New York City is just "New York." But the actual name of Oklahoma City is "Oklahoma City."

This shows just how dumb the technical definition of 'city' is in the USA, and how pointless the listing. Cleveland, Cincinnati and Tampa aren't even on the list, but their metro populations are WAY bigger than places like El Paso and Wichita, but just because their local government areas don't encompass the whole city they go down the list.

Or, more precisely, it shows how different types of incorporation and different types of technology influenced city borders. Boston is puny now, but it seemed a lot bigger in 1630 when you had to travel by foot, horse, or boat. They also didn't annex Cambridge/Somerville/Milton in the 19th century to become larger just like New York annexed Brooklyn/Staten Island/Bronx/Queens and Philly annexed...a whole lot of neighborhoods. LIkewise, southern and western cities incorporated later in areas without preexisting surrounding settlements and with road systems and cars that could increase the area of incorporation. US city incorporation isn't stupid, it's pragmatic. (And weird.)

Yeah, I lived in Boston for five years, and I didn't learn until long after I left that Somerville, Brookline, and a few other places are entirely separate cities and villages (I did know about Cambridge). I thought they were all just different neighborhoods within Boston. All my friends lived in those neighborhoods, and it took ten minutes to get from each to the other and then to downtown.
