3. Klein
4. Spring
5. Sugar Land
7. Missouri City
8. Richmond (By 2020 will have definitely over 100,000 it is hovering either right above or below that number give or take 20,000).
9. Pearland
10. League City
11. Pasadena
12. The Woodlands
13. Kingwood (if released by Houston)
14. Clear Lake City (If allowed to consolidate)
And if this was compiled again in 2020 I'm sure this city would cross also.
15. Conroe
LOL as if being surrounded by a bunch of burbs is something to boast. LA has miserable traffic, but at least there's some interesting stuff in some of those burbs.

Plano Texas (a city that qualifies in this discussion) is 71sq mi and 3820ppsm, and that's fairly "dense" by suburban standards. What is your basis for comparison?

But to answer your original question:
my comparison would be bordering cities around boston.

a county with no cities, i never knew such a thing existed. whos the mayor/town director ?

But that is the county around DC. And as someone said those areas you reference would be inside Philly not outside the city and most you mentioned are less than 10 Sq miles. Some of the smaller areas in Delaware County would be very dense but small. And places like Abington or even upper Merion are more aligned to a Boston equivalent in distance to places like Waltham in MA. I know both areas well and not sure I agree with your perspective.

Feel free to make corrections where it will be needed, because I wont be making any corrections.
You forgot about Renton, WA - 100,242 (2015 est.)

and then Federal Way, WA (95,171) will probably cross the 100k line by the 2020 census.

Also I think you used the 2014 est.

these are the populations based off of 2015 est.
Seattle CSA: 6

- Renton: 100,242

No county in Virginia has any cities. Every incorporated city in Virginia exists on its own, outside of any county. No city is in a county, and no county has cities.

It's not something to brag about and the Houston suburbs have plenty of unique things about them. I am just stating how different laws affect the number of suburbs over 100,000 in a metro.

Of course not. For example, NYC does not have any county government at all... so all 5 "counties" of NYC don't even have sheriff's office (or any other office for that matter). Even the borough presidents we elect are not part of any type of county government, but are city employees.

The original 13 colonies pretty much do whatever they want and have their own systems, since their systems are older than the US federal government.

P.S. If you are curious, in NYC foreclosures are handled by the New York City Sheriff's Office, division of the New York City Department of Finance.
