I don't think so. That would've made it larger than Syracuse at the time.

Exactly! These cities transformed America from a largely rural, agrarian nation into what it is today. Unfortunately, American capitalism eats its own. We have no problem tossing away entire cities.

Chicago gained 22,000 people in the city limits in 2008 alone. Check the latest census estimates.

Chicago's population has stabilized. Its no longer growing steadily, or decreasing steadily, it has remained in between 2.8-2.9 million for more than a decade now... some years it goes up, some years it goes down, but only slightly.

Chicago is an exception. It's an oasis in a desert of decay.
