Baltimore and St. Louis come to mind.

Atlanta has a small city population relative to the size of its metro, but I wouldn't say it has small city limits. It has nearly the same amount of land in the city limits as Philadelphia.

New Orleans has relatively small city limits, and due to the geography is Lake Pontchartrain some of the main suburbs like Slidell and Covington are physically very far from downtown though the inner suburbs like Metairie, Kenner, Westwego and Harvey are very dense.
How is Miami-Dade county consolidated? It has 36 other municipalities besides Miami proper along with a large Unincorporated area with over a Million residents.

Miami is a city, not consolidated. They have a city council and a mayor. They are also perhaps the smallest city within a huge metro area.

Miami or Providence, Columbia (SC) is also fairly extreme, although portions of it are low-density like Atlanta. St. Louis to some extent as well.

I don't know about Columbia, because it does have a relatively big land area for its city proper population(132.2 square miles for a city of 134,000).

I think about 80 square miles of that is Fort Jackson (U.S. Army base), and there are plenty of suburbs, especially northeast, west, and northwest of the city limits (urban population is 500k+).

Well I doubt Columbia would be considered a large metro
