Who is from the largest city, who is from the smallest town?

I'm from Between
Population of 148 (2000 census). That is probably a lock on the smallest town.

How big is home?

Well, it did take a couple of hundred years to get that big... .

Quite squarely in the middle of the field I suspect.
I'm from Cape Town, South Africa.
2001 census estimates population at 2.9million.


I now live in Zürich, Switzerland.

8,274,527 as of 2007. But I don't think it's the biggest city represented on BF.

Population of 537 as of the 2000 census, don't imagine it's grown any.

I consider my town a map-dot, it's amazing somehow (to me) that there are smaller towns represented.

Philly here- was the largest city long, long ago, and is now sixth, thanks to the sprawl that is Phoenix.

Phoenix is pretty damn big. I'd prefer Cadillac or Grayling Michigan if there were non farming jobs, or maybe a South Parkish hick town in the rockies, but oh well.

I live in the city of Richardson, but I am right on the county line, so I pay taxes and send my kids to school in Plano. So I either live in a city of 100k or 250K depending on how you decipher this.

What part of Philly are you from? I'm in the NE. I'm also doing the City to Shore for the second year.
