Let's invent collective nouns for residents different cities, or even states if you wish.

We have these already for animals (they're called terms of venery) as in a school of fish, a colony of ants, or a pride of lions. My favorite one of these is a shrewdness of apes. But how about ones for people in different cities? I'll start with

A rush of New Yorkers
A transience of Washingtonians
A confederacy of Atlantans
A smugness of San Franciscans

Throw in some more and let's see what we get!
