New York City
Dec 27, 2012
I thought New York City was in New York County; the Bronx being a borough of New York. Also, knowing which Orange County would have helped. There are at least 3.
Dec 27, 2012
And to be technical, Anaheim is still the largest city in any of the Orange Counties in the U.S.: a few thousand more residents than Santa Ana, 100,000 or so more than Orlando, and many more than French Lick, Indiana or Chapel Hill, North Carolina, or whatever the largest cities in the Orange County in New York, Texas, Vermont and Virginia might be.
Dec 28, 2012
Just a thought, but I think it'd help if the states each county is in were included in the hint.
Dec 28, 2012
Adding states would ruin the quiz. Whose first guess wouldn't be Detroit if they knew Wayne County was in Michigan?
May 21, 2013
without states I found that most of the quiz I was just typing in random big cities since who the heck knows where all of these counties are?
May 24, 2016
Agreed. got 14/18, by association of county with city. Either from travel, or tv shows/news. i.e.: Cook county jail.. Chicago. Detroit-Wayne County Airport. etc... Try taking the county quizzes for each state... :)

detroit's in michigan?
Nov 17, 2014
Am with kalbahamut here. 16/18 and I used exactly the same method.
Dec 19, 2015
Yep, agree with that method. Got 15 out of 18. Even without the states name, you can get a pretty high score.
Apr 24, 2016
Uh, you might need to brush up on the concept of a quiz.
Dec 29, 2012
I only knew one of these. I managed to get 9/18 just by guessing large American cities!
Apr 22, 2014
14 here. Most are pretty easy if you've been to those cities or pay attention to news "Xyz county sheriff reported... blah blah..."

I don't think you should put the state. But Orange is completely ambiguous. Both Florida and California have big counties named Orange. And both have a Disney park. So put the state for Orange, cuz otherwise there are multiple correct answers.
Jul 30, 2018
How many states have Orange Counties which one might consider the largest Orange County? Now, out of that very, very narrow field, what is the largest city? Maybe you accomplished what this quiz hoped you would: Learning

Fun and challenging quiz!

White Plains is also in Westchester County. It's also a big city.

Yeah, Westchester (Yonkers) is pretty obscure. Hennepin (Minneapolis) would be a good alternative, as would Shelby (Memphis), or Travis (Austin).
Jan 14, 2015
Agree, although I did try White Plains. Westchester County was the setting for the old Trixie Belden books I read as a pre-teen girl in the 1960s. There was never any mention of Yonkers in the books, only White Plains and the fictional town of Sleepyside-on-Hudson.

I only missed three and didn't guess, but I can't claim geographical brilliance. I knew many of these because my kids either lived in these cities at some point or married people from the areas. The Florida ones were easy for anyone who watches national election returns. The only reason I got Cleveland was because of the opening song about the Cuyahoga River from the movie, Major League.
May 5, 2016
Yeah, many of these I know because of watching election returns. Yonkers I agree is too obscure, and the Texas ones I got by random guessing.

Lots of people missed Broward but boy you meet someone from Broward they tell you they're from Broward, not Fort Lauderdale, not Miami, and not South Florida.
Mar 24, 2020
This is so much easier if you just forget the counties and name random big cities
