1990 is 25 years ago, not 15 years ago, and percents have nothing to do raw numbers. If you're gonna nitpick, it might make sense to make a point, and not flub simple math.
And raw numbers have nothing to do with scale.

Obviously most people don't know where Roland Garros is, where Wembley is located, or where Pebble Beach lies. The fact that 90% of people on earth don't know or care where an arena is specifically located or where a sports event takes place doesn't mean such places don't actually exist, and doesn't mean that such events don't actually occur.
It doesn't freakin matter - that IS the point. The guy made a high level point; sure there were "errors" if you can call them that, but I don't think he was trying to drill down to a bunch of technicalities, which you survive and thrive on. You can't see the forest from the trees, and then you grill others, needlessly, and harp on the same things over and over again, which is finding fault with what others say. It gets old. If you're posting on this site, you cannot possibly be all that important where you're that nasty with others, so consistently.

Yeah the point was certain places associated with Los Angeles are not in the city but right in the middle of town or on the outskirts, Anaheim & Orange county are right on the outskirts and are still looked at as L.A,Same with Beverly hills,West Hollywood, Santa monica, All that is still L.A.

And about Brooklyn hosting events, I said Brooklyn is the next important borough behind Manhattan but the Bronx ,Queens & Staten island are nowhere on the radar outside of New York, Manhattan was once it's own city so i see why it annexed the other boroughs for a bigger population & economy.But for it's small size Manhattan is very very unique & even on it's own is a great metropolis.

That's like saying "SF's population is 600,000". Accurate if you have a gigantic rounding error of hundreds of thousands.
hahaha thanks, but Im worlds closer to accuracy than 4 Million( lmao) whic is flat out delusion. As if.

This thread is NOT about daytime population. It's about RESIDENTIAL POPULATION as estimated by the US Census Bureau.

It has.nothing to do with what you or I think.

Yes, the official population of Manhattan is between 1.6 and 1.7 million people today. However, the population at any given time is greater than that and it's not just daytime. It's at all hours of the day. Sure, maybe the number of people at 2am is less than 4 million, but I'd bet you it's greater than 2 million people especially on a weekend. The borough is the center for most activities in NYC whether it's entertainment or business. It's not like 2+ million people empty out of the borough at 7pm because work is over and that's the only thing people are there for who don't live in the borough. Anybody who's been to Manhattan enough will know that it feels more than its official population in many places.

Ironic you say reality check, as the reality is there is 0% of the day where Manhattan is occupied by only residents; Residential population is useless information when discussing reality.

Secondly, I appreciate you trying to police an internet forum, but get some context behind the 4 million number, I was responding to a member who commented that Manhattan has a similar population to the Bronx, which is just crazy IN REALITY.

Pretty sure that's why he wrote "for all intents and purposes" in the beginning.

However, he could've just said "daytime weekday population" or something like that. And really, it's something that applies to pretty much any major central business district for any metro. SF probably balloons past 1 million during weekday daytime.

Preciesly why residential population is useless, especially when discussing population figures for central districts of major cities.
