What is the most dense/urban city in each state? Actually, this question can be divided into two sub-questions:
1) What is the actual most dense/urban city in your state?
2) What is commonly perceived to be the most dense/urban city in your state? (sometimes common perceptions and reality are different)

It doesn't have to be the largest city in the state, of course!

In Ohio, it's Cincinnati. More residents live in its compact downtown core than any other city in the state.

In SC it's Charleston. Downtown is the densest part of the state. Charleston (138K), North Charleston (110K), and Mount Pleasant (80K and fastest growing city east of the Mississippi) are all crammed together in between 4 rivers.

Then you have Summerville and Goose Creek, which are large suburbs that surround them. Daniel Island and Hanahan are a smaller suburbs, but they're packing in as well.

The sea islands are also dense for SC standards.

In GA, it's Atlanta, but you could argue that Savannah's downtown area is more walkable than anything in Atlanta, but it's small.

Most dense built environment in Oklahoma is, I would say, the CBD of OKC, and the most dense residential area in the state is OKC's Deep Deuce, just east of the CBD.

Easy answer for Maryland: Baltimore.

For NJ, historically it's been Newark but these days I can see an argument for Jersey City.

Virginia: Richmond

Wilmington for Delaware, no debate there.

Rhode Island's only real city, Providence, is commonly perceived to be the densest. But in fact, the real densest city is tiny Central Falls (area: 1.29 square miles), which is the 27th-densest city in America.
