Here's 4 in Florida that are more dense:

Miami Beach - 12,502 per sq mile
North Miami Beach - 8230 per sq mile
Miami - 6,558 per sq mile
Ft Lauderdale - 5100 per sq mile

There are others that are more dense but many are really small towns on slivers of land.

New York shouldn't even be part of the discussion. Boston has 12,813/sq. mi. My Zip is just under 29,000/sq. mi.

My city is at 5,375.3/sq mi

Up in Los Angeles the average population density for the city is 8,205/sq mi. Population densities for individual neighborhoods range from a high of 43,000/sq mi. in neighborhoods like Koreatown to a low of 1,023/sq mi. in the rural mostly undeveloped mountain neighborhood of Shadow Hills. Los Angeles is the 6th most dense city for its overall population density of the 34 cities with more than 500,000 residents, ranking just below Washington DC and just above Baltimore.

Considering the fact the fact that Miami beach is only 7 sq. miles, I don't think it's fair to compare that to an actual city. More like a neighborhood.

Are you saying New Orleans is more dense? When Norfolk has almost 2000 more persons per sq. mile?
