Depends on where and how you define it May 22, 2006

It's like one great big small town in some ways, but:

El Paso County, Texas, USA (mostly the city) has a population of 700,000 plus more in surrounding areas of New Mexico.

Cd. Juárez, Chihuahua, Mexico must have at least 1.5 millon people (we don't know exactly).

That adds up to 2.2 million plus.

I've also been spending some time in Carmel, California, population a little over 4,000, definitely a small town.

Still, it's easy living in wherever I am.

Greenville, SC May 22, 2006

Per Wikipedia:

Greenville is the county seat of and largest city in Greenville County, South Carolina. Greenville, with its historic homes and modern office towers, has been described as where "Old South" meets "New South". Greenville's Metropolitan Statistical Area (MSA) population is 583,867 and the Greenville-Spartanburg-Anderson Combined Statistical Area (CSA) population is 1,173,433 according to 2004 estimates by the U.S. Census Bureau. Greenville County is the most populous in the state at 379,616, but, because its city limits enclose less than 30 square miles, the population of the city proper is 56,002 (2000 U.S. Census). The city of Greenville is one of the most densely populated municipalities in the state, while Greenville County has the highest population density of any county in South Carolina. Greenville is the primary city of "The Upstate" of South Carolina, an area that includes the six counties of northwestern South Carolina along the borders of North Carolina and Georgia.
Greenville is on Interstate Highway I-85 between Atlanta and Charlotte, with I-385 and I-185 servicing other areas of the metro. I-26 is about 30 miles to the northeast in Spartanburg.,_South_Carolina

DC Metro area May 22, 2006

According to stats, the DC metro area is the 8th biggest in the US, with about 5 million.
The area consist of several states, DC, MD & VA
The area where I live still has a "small townish" feel, with the traffic of I-95 to go with it!!

But ,I grew up on an island in the very north of Norway, population 70!!

Calamandrana, province of Asti, Piedmont, Italy May 22, 2006

I was born and still live in Calamandrana, a small town with 1,742 inhabitants, where everybody knows everybody.

Countryside, no traffic, also no broadband, but fresh and clean air 365 days a year, good wine, slow pace.

I've been in many places in Europe (Germany, France, Poland, Russia, Austria), but I still enjoy living in this out-of-time village.

My tiny country... May 22, 2006

By reading your comments, I realize how small my country is.

Total area of Costa Rica is 51,100 km² (19,725 sq mi), including Isla del Coco. Population is estimated at 4,075,261 (July 2006 est.). My canton, Montes de Oca, measures 15,16 km2, and it has 4 districts. According to the electoral roll, there are 4 534 males and 5420 females registered.
Our city has a large population of immigrants (mostly Nicaraguan and Colombian). By the way, it is known as the “University district” of Costa Rica, since two state Universities and more than four private ones are located here.

twin city: 1,169 May 22, 2006

Another countryside lover.
This habitat actually consists of two villages, until 1993 situated in two provinces, Gerkesklooster (Gerke's monastery) in Friesland and Stroobos (straw/reed bundle), a former customhous for the interprovincial canal shipping trade, in Groningen. In 1993, the province border was changed, so the villages now cosely are called twin city. And you won't believe it, but shortly after the union the cable provider put its spade in the heavy clay, so the the twins are within the twinkling of an eye connected tot the rest of the world.
