What are the top 5 or 10 city propers that punch above their weight the most for their land area size?


You can choose a specific criteria or just overall if you'd like.

You may be asked to be more specific in your criterion.

You mean cities with small areas that appear larger or are more influential?

Obvious ones are Boston, Miami and San Francisco.

Seattle and Washington also come to mind.

Personally, I think any city below 15 sqmiles and with a population over 150,000 is really neat.

It makes it feel like an urban village. It's why I picked Alexandria, VA - 16sqmi and 160,000. Hartford also seems appealing for this reason.

I think Boston and SF are clear winners here. Pound for pound, their entire city centers have action baby! Urban, urban, more urban. Love it.

Agreed. Id add add DC to that list.

Next tier would be Pittsburgh, Baltimore and Seattle.

Providence is about 18 square miles and has about 180,000 people. So, that is another city with similar characteristics in that regard.
