Density of the city, town or suburb you live in?

What's the density of the city, town or suburb that you live in? I know that we've had threads before about density in cities but I also wanted to include towns and suburbs as well. Killeen,Tx where I live has a density of 2,400 ppsm.

Seattle was 8,880 over 83.9 square miles last year. It tends to go up by 150-250 per year...let's say 9,070 in July 2019.

Lincoln Square, Chicago:

Block Group 2 - 27,481 ppsm

Census Tract 407 - 25,174 ppsm

Zip Code 60625 - 20,701 ppsm (includes a 0.5 sq. mile cemetery surrounded by an 8' concrete wall- not really a functional part of the neighborhood. density is 23,728 ppsm without it)

City of Chicago - 12,079 ppsm (this is an average density figure spread across 227 sq. miles and includes vast tracts of uninhabited land like ORD @ ~15 sq. miles and the Lake Calumet industrial area @ ~18 sq. miles)


My immediate area in Lincoln Square has a fantastic family-friendly level of density, IMO. Dense enough to be urban and walkable but still relatively quiet and open and green on the side streets. It's a nice creamy middle.

My census tract has a density of about 40,000 ppsm

By current population estimates, the City of Toronto (now somewhere north of 2.9 million in 243 sq miles) has a density of just over 12,000 ppsm.

According to Statistical Atlas:

Zip code (60605): 21.3k /sq mi
Census Tract: 17.4k/sq mi
Census Block Group: 58.4k/sq mi
Census Block: 129.9k/sq mi.

My census tract /zip code includes vast amounts of parkland, hence the discrepancy.

I live in Meilong Town of Minhang District, Shanghai. It has a population density of 13.4k / square kilometre, or 34.3k / square mile. It's on the very periphery of Shanghai's urban core (just inside the Outer Ring Expressway) hence the relatively low density.

I've estimated the population of my residential district to be about 8000 in an area of 0.25 square kilometres, which gives a population density of 32k / square km, or 81.9k / square mile.

Nothing impressive, really. I will say the city is quite evenly spread out. There are a few higher density hoods and lower density areas but overall the city is evenly spread out due to its small size and development pattern.

I live in Tokyo’s Bunkyo Ward, one of the core wards bordering Chiyoda, where the Imperial Palace sits. If you have ever seen a pic of the Tokyo roller coaster going through a big round hole in a building (Tokyo Dome City), I live within a 10 minute walk from there. The ward on the whole is 219,000 people in 4.36 sq miles / 11.29 sq kilometers, for an even 50,000 pp sq mi / 19,290 pp sq km.

My neighborhood is called Nishikata, and it’s hilly with single family houses, so definitely less than the ward average. But still really packed in.

I live in the Samseong area of Gangnam in Seoul. Samseong is an office ward, and at only 3.19 km2 (1.23 sq mi) it's pretty small. It's population as of 2001 (this is the most recent stat I could find. The population must be much, much larger now judging by all of the new apartment buildings around) was 41,171 (12,906/km2 - 33,430/sq mi).

The current city population of Seoul is 9,838,892 (16,000/km2 - 42,000/sq mi) with a metro pop. of 25,600,000.


Samseong is to the left of Seoul Tower. Where the skyscraper is with the purple lights.

^^^ that's a cool resource:

Neighborhood: East Poplar/Northern Liberties Philadelphia (where I'm from)

Zip (19123): 14,824
Density: 11,695 p/sm
Tract: 9,814 p/sm

Neighborhood: Vinegar Hill, Navy Yard, Ft. Greene, Clinton Hill (where I live now), Western Bed-Stuy

Zip (11205): 44,818
Density: 47,414 p/sm
Block: 73,952 p/sm
(No tract info; just block info. I live on a "superblock" with three 16 story buildings: 2 my Coop and 1 a Pratt dorm, plus a bunch of new mid-rise apartment buildings fronting the next street over - density drops by about 25,000 p/sm once you cross a street in any direction)

NYC: 27K ppsm
Brooklyn: 36.7K ppsm
Zipcode: 55K ppsm
Neighborhood: 47K ppsm
Tract: 37K ppsm

It's interesting that my tract is only 37K ppsm. Most of the surrounding tracts are +50K ppsm.

I live in a 8.6 km2 district, with 130,484 inh. (Census 2010) for a 15,173 inh/km2 density (or 39,298 ppsqm).

That's my second hood since I moved to the city back in 2012. Previously, I lived in one of the districts that form the city centre. 2.6 km2, 69,460 inh., 26,715 inh/km2 density (or 69,192 ppsqm).
