Seattle for example has never felt like a place of 4 million to me. It's got some dense areas for US standards but they're small and right outside of that it really does feel like a billy goats mountainside town on steroids. It takes Seattle a thousand miles to reach a population of 3 million with a density of 3,000 and it takes Naples 400 square miles to reach a population of 3.7 million with a density three times more than Seattle at 9,400.

American cities are naturally very sprawled out, including the much hyped LA urban area and they all lack that consistent density the rest of the world has. This is why both Fitzrovian and I pertain to the core. Suburbs in the rest of the US are uselessly the same with some varying density, yes the metros are large and feel large but US sunbelt cities all typically lack a vital core that other non sunbelt US cities have. Not to mention the other cities in the world have.
When Was the Last time you have been to Seattle? It is Definitely Not Billy goat towns, Used to be but not anymore. The Area Between Seattle and Tacoma has filled in with cities like Renton, Federal Way, and Kent all with populations of about 100,000 and growing everyday. These cities now have Very Diverse populations and are serving the Quiet Sleepy Suburbs while growing urban Sprawl with places like Kent and Renton Completely Turning their City Centers into very Important areas on commerce and Promoting downtown Living all having high rises planned for the near future especially with Federal Way Planning to Built a 500 ft Skyscraper making it the Tallest Building between Seattle and Portland. hell and you cant say the Eastside is Billy Goats! Bellevue is one of the fatest growing cities in the state with excellent downtown area. High rises coming up each day. Many People who live in Bellevue and eastward find no reasons to go into Seattle anymore. East of Bellevue is rapidly being built up Identifying itself less as a Small suburb of Seattle but as a Medium sized suburb of the quickly Growing Bellevue. I mean you lindly talking about seattle as if it is the country but you sir would be wrong if you ever took a drive 20 miles outside of Seattle in Either Direction especially South!
