Epic test. Got 429. Sebastian and Sandusky are misspelled though and "Barnstable Town" is just a formality when Barnstable changed to a city from a town, the Census Bureau drops the "Town" in there but absolutely no one does anywhere near Barnstable.

Also Mankato, MN (53,000), St. Cloud, MN (110,000), Sioux City, IA (116,000), Rock Hill, SC (105,000) and Alton, IL (83,000) are missing. I think there might have been a couple others but I've forgotten now.

Many of these are compound names with the Census Bureau (Palm Coast--Daytona Beach--Port Orange, FL or Leominster--Fitchurg, MA) where the more well known, more compact business center is technically outpopulated by a sprawling suburb with technically large municipal limits and the Census folks don't seem to care. Some, like Virginia Beach (Norfolk) include an older much more established city that is the true heart of the urbanized area, but they just leave it out of the name altogether.

Waterbury, CT is also misspelled.
Whoops, Mankato is there. Salisbury, MD and Salisbury, NC are missing.

Thank you for letting me know, it is very easy to forget some answers when there are 500 of them. I have updated the quiz. Kinda makes me wonder how much StewartF has to go through.
