If I had the photos I'd be all over this, but let me get some starting points for cities I've been to and know a little about:

Cleveland: East side, Little Italy area (guess)
Milwaukee: South side, just south of DT (guess, but more sure this time)
Detroit: IDK......South side, which wasn't as torn down or downtrotten as the rest of the city
Columbus: has to be near OSU campus. Very dense layout for a smaller city and many people per unit
Cincinnati: Over the Rhine or just beyond. Mostly ghettos aren't as dense because of decay, but OTR may be an exception
Minneapolis: Between Uptown and Downtown on the near SW side. 100% wall to wall 3 to 6 story apartment units for 50+ blocks. This includes Loring Park, minus the lake (aka "Central Park").
St. Louis: Again, IDK (even though I lived there for a year), but guessing west or south sides???
Indianapolis: Been through it, but never visited, but see most density on the near north side of DT

That's it. A pretty useless list I know but it's a start and I've seen every one of these cities at one point or another and/or know about their layout.

The cental corridor of St. Louis from Downtown to Clayton is very dense. Basically most all of St. Louis city and the inner ring burbs. The forground is Downtown St. Louis City and the highrises in the horizon is are roughly 8miles west in Downtown Clayton, MO.

The Central West end/Skinker Debaliver is very dense too. The CWE is the most cosmopolitan area in the midwest outside Chicago.

Lakewood, OH (first inner ring suburb of Cleveland to the west) has a population density of 9,957.3 per sq mile...population 54,765.

Not a neighborhood, but the densest part of Ohio overall...even denser than Cleveland city.

the entire city of st. louis, with few exceptions, is structurally dense. as recently as 1950, st. louis city had a significantly higher population density than chicago does today.

True. But the same time in say 1900 the city of Chicago had a higher pop. density than St. Louis in its built environment....I'm pretty sure. Not 1850 though.

Lakewood, OH a suburb outside of Cleveland is very dense. It's like a much smaller version of the Gold Coast in Chicago.

I think Short North/OSU in Columbus is actually the densest area in all of Ohio though. Downtown/OTR in Cincinnati is built very densely (East Coast-like) but doesn't have much population left as OTR is a pretty bad neighborhood. East Cleveland is another Cleveland suburb that's very dense near 9,000/per sq mile but it's 100% ghetto and has lost nearly half of it's peak population it's mostly abandoned now.

In the midwest as a whole outside of Chicago I know there's some dense areas in Milwaukee, the Twin Cities, Detroit area, etc.
