Yeah why is New Jersey an option?

Maryland is mostly rural, the only exception being the Baltimore and DC areas.

But NJ is significantly suburban.

In terms of urban, I'd say maryland has more than NJ.

I don't agree. That's not to say there aren't significant amounts of suburban/rural areas in New Jersey, because there are (particularly in South Jersey toward Cape May and Northwestern New Jersey) -- but as a proportion of each state, Maryland appears more rural than New Jersey. The string of urban areas in New Jersey between New York and Philadelphia includes cities like Camden, Newark, Trenton, Jersey City, Hoboken, Patterson, etc., whereas Maryland becomes pretty rural quickly once you leave the Balt./DC area. I would definitely go as far as to say that Pennsylvania has more urban areas than Maryland, too.

In my experience, if I were to rank the top 5 states with the most urban scenery AS A PROPORTION TO THE REST OF THE STATE, it would go:

1.) Connecticut
2.) Rhode Island
3.) New Jersey
4.) Massachusetts
5.) New York

(followed closely by Penn., Ohio, and MD)

Most of MD is rural except DC, some DC suburbs are pretty urban, Bmore, Frederick, Cumberland and a few others, but most of Maryland is rural. Basically the whole eastern shore is rural, except for like ocean city and most of western Maryland is rural. Id go with Connecticut, rhode island, and jersey as having the most

Judging by population density alone, it would seem logical that NJ would have the most urban scenery, especially considering it includes two of the largest metro areas in the country.

Despite having a few medium-sized cities, CT isn't particularly "urban" overall and has some of the least densely populated areas in the BosWash corridor.

And while the Providence metro occupies a large percentage of RI, I wouldn't say that the state as a whole offers more urban scenery than the others. Far from it.

And everything else is either suburbs for NYC or Philadelphia.

^^ don't forget Patterson/Passaic & New Brunswick/Highland Park/Edison (well most of Middlesex County). and i wouldn't exactly call the shore points rural.

CT is urban along the 95 corridor and by Hartford & the 84 corridor, the rest is quite rural.
