The densest Neighborhood in Chicago is the Near North Side ~ 48,000/sq mi.

Sorry about that, I was looking at the densest census tracts.

You can back 10 square miles for the airports, 10 square miles of the Wolf Lake area on the south side that's undeveloped, huge railroad yards and southside industrial areas and suddenly the average density of developed areas starts changing quickly.

Cities like San Fran and Boston are extremely dense, but you can see how they're helped with the lack of huge industrial areas, airports that are either not in the city limits or are squeezed to within a few square miles, and don't have large tracts of undeveloped land.

Certainly saying those cities aren't dense, but I think that's one of the reasons people focus on urban density or residential density many times over just using the official boundries of cities that might include 50 square miles of farmfields or desert.

The entire O'hare Airport/community area is 32 sq. miles and Chicago has 227 sq miles. Take away the 32 sq miles that is part of Chicago's city limits, then Chicago density is higher than 12,600 ppsm.

According to this, O'hare is considered a neighborhood of Chicago since there is a residential part of O'hare.

Miami Beach has a population of around 90,000. That is an awful large neighborhood.

Lauderhill, Lauderdale Lakes, Largo, Margate, Pembroke Pines, Kendall, Hialeah, Hollywood, Fl are all higher than Norfolk.

My neighborhood is 198 people per square mile.

Making fun of the population density of a small town now? Real mature.

Well a neighborhood is different from a city though, isn't it?

Yes, some people like to have some elbow room and not have to hear what their neighbor is doing every second of the day.
