Two cities that are made for a thread like this are Providence and Portsmouth, New Hampshire.

This is downtown Portsmouth:

Agreed Austin has few dense urban areas it feels like it goes straight suburban outside the core which isn't particularly urban or impressive it just has some interesting bar and restaurant areas. Urbanity it is really not its appeal IMHO

If THAT'S density, heck, just about anywhere with a sidewalk would qualify.
It's the densest neighborhood outside of downtown and considered dense for Baton Rouge and many sunbelt cities. And we're talking about small and mid sized cities here, not St. Louis, Louisville, Memphis, Buffalo, New Orleans or Milwaukee.

Define "very dense neighborhood". Define "small" and "medium".

Seattle's densest neighborhoods are: Capitol Hill, Belltown, Lower Queen Anne (Uptown), First Hill, South Lake Union, Eastlake, University District, and Ballard.
