Not all "actual cities" cover more than 50 square miles. Heck, my entire county is less than 50 square miles, and my county has 12 cities and towns in it! A city covering 7 square miles or just one square mile is just as legitimate as a city covering 50 or 100 sq miles. Cities covering 500 sq miles or more are just plain crazy! lol

The "city" density figure is 856 people per square mile; the zip codes density is just under 66 people per square mile.

Which is a LOT more dense that the last "city" I lived in -- Washburn, ME. That has a population density in the city limits of 46 people per square mile; and in the zip code (04786) the density is 26 people per square mile.

A lot of you have higher population densities per square mile than my entire county has in total population. LOL

I'm wondering if any other suburbs of cities have a higher population density than here in Nassau county on Long island. It seems like our population density is higher than most cities, lol.

Yes, pretty much the entire L.A. basin is higher.

My zip code (30329) in inner-suburban Atlanta (unincorporated DeKalb County) is 5,801 per square mile.

DeKalb County has approximately 740,000 people in 268 square miles.

Here's an interesting tidbit: Long Island is 130 miles long, but if we were our own state, we'd be the 12th most populous state

Just about all of them.

You also have to take the San Fernando Valley into consideration, even though huge portions are within L.A. City Limits.

When you talk about solid, suburban density L.A. pretty much takes the cake.
