Newarkbomb - that wasn't sarcasm... really truly!
I spent a month in NJ last year and did NOT want to leave. I loved everything I saw and everyone I met and every city I visited. I wish I had had more time. I will definitely be back! And thanks for the other recommends... I will check them out "online" (for now).

Dunsmuir, California. Like Jim Thorpe, it's a tiny town wedged into a narrow mountain valley.

Ok, there are only 1923 people, so people really didn't build up per se, but it is wedged in there pretty tightly for town in the "wide open West".

Check out some of the pics posted on the other part of City-Data.

Duluth, Minnesota has a compact downtown with lots of connected brick buildings, skywalks, pubs, and housing on the top floors.



Refurbished Bridgeman/Russell housing on First Ave.

Portsmouth, New Hampshire seems to fit your description. I wouldn't consider it small (we call it a city)... but it has about 20,000 people with a very dense, historic centre.

LOL Kettlepot - I've actually BEEN to Dunsmuir, CA... after a visit to Sawyer's Bar... many moons ago. OK - I know I'm resurrecting this thread but I couldn't believe it when I saw Dunsmuir, and I didn't realize more people had responded - thanks so much everyone!!
