It would have to have around 3-4x its current population to have the highest population density of any U.S. city.
i have no idea what this is supposed to mean.

according to this it was #5 in 2000:

Union City, NJ has a higher population density than anywhere else. It's size is a little over one square mile and it has a population of 62,000+!
and its currently #15.

Seattle was more like 8,150 in 2015 per the last estimates. The densest tract was 51,000 in 2010 but the State says it was 56,000 in 2015. In 2010, four tracts were over 30,000.

What don't you understand? You don't get simple multiplication?

You claimed that Somerville used to be the densest U.S. city, but the densest U.S. cities have 3-4 times the density of Somerville, and had similar population in the 1970's.

So if Somerville was really the densest U.S. city in the 1970's, as you claim, it would have to have 3-4 times its current population. So it's obviously a ridiculous claim.

Overall Columbus is a pretty sprawling city with a modest 3,624 people per square mile.

However the 43201 zip code has a density of 10,632.74 per square mile. This area includes The University District, Weinland Park, and parts of Victorian Village and Italian Village.

The 43206 zip code has a density of 8,269.00 people per sq. mile. It is south of downtown and includes the popular German Village neighborhood.

43203 (Near East Columbus and Mt. Vernon) has a reported density of 7,103.28 per sq. mile.

So Columbus, while not by any means dense, isn't devoid of urban areas. It's greatly reduced by suburban/exurban areas the central city has annexed over the years. For example the area around Easton Mall and the airport only has 1,237.00 per square mile. The 43240 area code is almost entirely a commercial district for Polaris Mall and big outlet stores has 538 people per square mile which is ridiculously low for a city but makes sense when placed in context.

I look forward to core neighborhoods becoming denser and increasingly interconnected

i said in the 90's; not sure why your so upset about this.

The when is irrelevent; the point is that your claim was totally wrong.

Point us to these grammatical/logical errors that made English reading comprehension difficult, please.

I live in an unincorporated area, zoned to Katy ISD, so we in this area say we live in Katy or Cinco Ranch. 77494 has a density of 1,556, but since more than a third of the zip has yet to be developed the actual density of the area is closer to the nearby zip of 77450 and even then because both of those zips are 40 and 20 square miles respectively. The 77450 zip code has a population of 74,000 and about 4,600 people per square mile if you don't include parkland inside the zip code.
