I strongly doubt the number 1 place will change because it leads by about 30,000 people per square mile on the second place slot in the US.

not sure, but based on a quick look they are all uber small, basically a building complex, not sure that really means anything more than a stat

Guttenburg is 10K people in .2 sq miles

Freindship Village is 4k people in .055 sq miles, like 30 acres or something, am sure there many many 30 acre plots of land with greater than 4,500 people in the US

Yeah, there shouldn't be a big change when the official numbers come out.

It will still be most likely be New York City and the Hudson County cities leading the pack as usual.

Friendship Village without a doubt - it was pretty much designed to be a high density special purpose housing zone. Nowhere else can compete with it when it comes to density.

The difference is are they considered a census designated place by the U.S. government. For instance, Montgomery County the most affluent county in Md and major D.C. suburb has mostly census designated places rather than incorporated cities. Bethesda and Silver Spring are both census designated places.

well yes, but in terms of a dense area Freindship village is in an area that is well behind many areas in density, at least with continuity greater than a few square blocks, many areas of Manhattan, SF, Boston, Chicago, Philly not to mention DC itself will have much more consisytent density over an area that at least feels like a neighborhood, not a planned community that is a part of a neighborhood.

Are you talking about the same Friendship Village I'm thinking of? The one with the shopping plaza?
It's such a small land area, basically just full of high rise condos. Once you leave that 0.06 square miles of unincorporated land, it's straight up suburbia (Other than DC).

Not to say it's not a dense area, because it obviously is. But there's plenty of places across America that tip over 5,00 people in 0.06 square miles.
