Here's a list of the number of places (both incorporated and census designated, including principle cities) which have population or area in the UA for all Urban Areas over 1,000,000.

New York - Newark, NY - NJ - CT : 682
Los Angeles - Long Beach - Anaheim, CA : 156
Chicago, IL - IN : 279
Miami, FL : 161
Philadelphia, PA - NJ - DE - MD : 256
Dallas - Fort Worth - Arlington, TX : 109
Houston, TX : 79
Washington, DC - VA - MD : 247
Atlanta, GA : 105
Boston, MA - NH - RI : 111
Detroit, MI : 84
Phoenix - Mesa, AZ : 30
San Francisco - Oakland, CA : 80
Seattle, WA : 141
San Diego, CA : 40
Minneapolis - St Paul, MN - WI : 114
Tampa - St Petersburg, FL : 89
Denver - Aurora, CO : 59
Baltimore, MD : 78
St Louis, MO - IL : 159
San Juan, PR : 104
Riverside - San Bernardino, CA : 43
Las Vegas - Henderson, NV : 11
Portland, OR - WA : 66
Cleveland, OH : 94
San Antonio, TX : 34
Pittsburgh, PA : 211
Sacramento, CA : 38
San Jose, CA : 21
Cincinnati, OH - KY - IN : 154
Kansas City, MO - KS : 53
Orlando, FL : 64
Indianapolis, IN : 43
Virginia Beach, VA : 12
Milwaukee, WI : 54
Columbus, OH : 37
Austin, TX : 32
Charlotte, NC - SC : 33
Providence, RI - MA : 27
Jacksonville, FL : 16
Memphis, TN - MS - AR : 18
Salt Lake City - West Valley City, UT : 20

NYC has far and away the most with over twice as many as Chicago. Of course, this really means nothing as it pushes the average population of each place way down. Las Vegas has the fewest with only 11, and unsurprisingly it has the places with the largest average population.

The Boston MSA has only about 20 municipalities, all New England towns are considered MCD (equivalent to counties) However Cities are counted as municipalities, so Only Boston, Cambridge, Lowell, Lawrence, Quincy, Everett, Waltham, Newton, Brockton, Plymouth, Chelsea, Lynn, Salem, Gloucester, Peabody, Weymouth, Amesbury, Medford, Malden and Haverhill count.

The Census Bureau also counts CDPs as places though, and it seems that many, or most towns have a CDP at their center, so there are lots of places in the UA.

I thought i read somewhere that Chicago had the most incorporated Suburbs or the most City Governments, for example; they have the most suburbs that have a City Manager, Mayor, Board of Aldermen, etc.
