New Orleans and Miami do not belong on this list. Also - how are you not including Chicago?

I would say the largest 20 cities circa 1950 are urban and real cities.

Like San Francisco is definitely one.

LA it's becoming one.

San Antonio TX also feels pretty compact for its large size, and by bus you can go virtually just about everywhere.

NYC obviously

Boston

Chicago

DC

Are there any other cities that sort of meet this criteria?
San Antonio is a sprawl. Definitely not walkable.

Some people say "small core" and put it into the non-city category. In your case you're saying a small core means the opposite. San Antonio is as low-density and sprawly as it gets.
I think it may be the most sprawly of the Texas cities. It's spread out for sure.
