That's crazy, I never would have guessed that for a city with a population of 7 million.

Bear in mind that the City of London is really only a portion of what would be considered "downtown "London. The City of London is somewhat comparable to Lower Manhattan, but there is considerable population within the neighborhoods adjacent to The City (such as Bloomsbury). The whole West End of London is NOT in the "City of London", but would be considered to be part of the greater central business district. Areas such as Regents Street, Oxford Street definitely feel like a downtown area, but if you walk one block off these busy streets you may be on a quiet residential street or mews. That's one thing that makes London such a fascinating place!

I always thought St. Louis had a tiny downtown. The Arch and Laclede's Landing, the City Museum, and that one mall like area just NE of downtown were the only places you could go at night there. Very business-oriented downtown.

I would say some of the FL 'mega-developments' like Deltona and The Villages...as big as they are, there is no real core.
