This is a vid of the physical size of major cities, and their areas superimposed over the UK.

Some cities are huge with small populations. I guess that means most of the city is parkland, or farms. The US has some of the largest cities in terms of areas but smallest populations. That is car culture for you.

US cities are often included in large metro areas.

It's not the city itself that is large, it's usually the metro area, and the same is true of some cities outside the US, and what was being superimposed in some cases was vast metro areas rather than cities, whilst in other cases it was the city limits, which makes for confusion.

Savills, produced some interesting research reports regarding London's Metro Area back in 2015.
