My city's population density is:

4362/sq. mile. Norfolk,Va

I also want to find a southern city that can top that.

I don't live in a city, but instead live in a small town of around 592/sq. mile

As for Southern cities as dense as Norfolk Louisville, Kentucky was the closest I found although I think it's sometimes considered Midwestern. Miami is denser, but it's not exactly in "The South."

Alexandria and Arlington are two in your own state that are denser than Norfolk. Are they not "southern" enough though?

You tell me. Do you think they count? Those two slipped my mind. DC sprawl.
