The United States has dozens of major cities, including 11 of the 55 global cities of all types—with three "alpha" global cities: New York City, Los Angeles, and Chicago. The figures expressed below are for populations within city limits. A different ranking is evident when considering U.S. metro area populations, although the top three would be unchanged. The ten largest cities, based on the United States Census Bureau's 2005 estimates, are as follows:|
1 - New York City
2 - Los Angeles
3 - Chicago
4 - Houston
5 - Philadelphia
6 - Phoenix
7 - San Antonio
8 - San Diego
9 - Dallas
10 - San Jose
Sitka in Alaska could also be considered the biggest city in the US at 4,811.5 square miles.|
There may be less than 9000 people there but that's over 10 times the size of New York (a mere 468.9 square miles).
