What's your obsession with square milage? That's a strange way to measure a city. City boundries are pretty arbitrary.

I mean look at Iowa City and Waterloo. Iowa City has more people than Waterloo with tight city limits around the built up area. Waterloo has less people, but many square miles of vacant land and farmland that's included within the city limits. Look at the entire area around the airport and to the east. Tons of land and it's all farms. It doesn't really tell you much.

The built up urban area of Waterloo/Cedar Falls is roughly 10 miles from southeast to northwest, and 2-4 miles from northeast to southwest (the area list on a diagonal axis for the most part)

It's about 30 square miles or so.

The built up area of Iowa City/Coralville/North Liberty is roughly 10 miles from northwest to southeast, and 2-3 miles from northeast to southwest (the area lies on a diagonal axis for the most part)

It's about 25 square miles or so.


What's that have to do with finding a good neighborhood? You already know the newer suburbs are Coralville and North Liberty.

I ask for information you bring up old argument,also you speak as if you never been to waterloo that area you speak of has been filled out 10-12 years ago,the avenue of the saints is going through that area ( ST.louis to St. paul) so they finaly decided to build that area up.Now as far as who has the most people that will go to waterloo by the last census. Thanks to obama and who was well aware of blacks being purposley under-counted and his new way of taken census to make sure it will not happen under his watch will benefit waterloo big-time.the black leaders of waterloo has been for along time stating that waterloo's black population has been under-counted by 10,000-15,000 and if so, and the white flight is not to bad,well, see ya sioux city.

^ look at a map of the Waterloo city limits, and look at a road map of Waterloo. There's a huge area that's not developed. Mostly north of town, although there are other very large areas to the South and Southwest that are farmland right now.

WOW. Thanks for the pictures. I am sorry I am a bit ignorant but I never thought Iowa to be that pretty and fascinating. Makes me want to stay in the Midwest and live there. It is very beautiful. Again thanks for sharing. Seems like a wonderful place!

I love Iowa City. I don't live there now but I was born there. So that's where my earliest memories are.

Great thread. Thanks Chicago, for taking time to put the pics together. Iowa City is a great place to live, learn, work, and raise a family.

h20loo-iowa and Busch71 made me laugh out loud - thanks for the jokes guys!

I've gone nuts trying to get a feel for IC. I may move from NY and your photos dispell a lot of stereotypes.
Love em nice job!
