No, Union City is the most dense city in the United States. Guttenberg, NJ, only 1.5 miles away, is the most dense municipality.

Just an example:

Hudson county, NJ
Population: 675,000
Density: 14,610 ppsm

City of Boston:
Population: 667,000
Density: 13,840 ppsm

And DC has roughly the same density as Yonkers or Newark.
Exactly. I always thought of places like Queens Village as suburbs within the city, but now I realize that it has a population density of 23,778 pp/sm.

Ok, but that isn't the point. It is/was(2000) in the top 100 in terms of population density in the country in terms of incorporated municipalities. I don't think people would think that a suburb of Buffalo would have that kind of density. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/List...lation_density

And parts of New Jersey are denser than NYC. So maybe northern New Jersey is actually the city and NYC is the suburb.

There are no parts of New Jersey that are denser than the densest parts of NYC of equivalent area. None. Manhattan has a daytime population density of over 170,000 ppsm.

And there are no areas in the suburbs of NYC that are denser than the densest parts of Boston (61,000 ppsm). Before you say anything more, go back in the thread and read what I am responding to.

The densest sections of Boston are actually 80,000 to 100,000 ppsm in the Fenway neighborhood with the densest census tract having a density of 110,000 ppsm as well as the northern half of the Beacon Hill neighborhood which averages around 70,000-80,000 ppsm . Just wanted to give a better idea of the peak density. This doesn't include that downtown and Back Bay during the day reach higher densities than those neighborhoods because of people at work, school, and tourists.

Doesn't suburban Somerville have a high density, something like 15k-20k/sq mi?

Somerville is a city. It's outside the city of Boston, thus considered a Boston suburb, but is urban by every conceivable definition.
