Name the 100 (or less for earlier censuses) largest cities (in some cases, towns, villages, etc) in the US for each census since 1790. Keep in mind some places no longer exist or have been merged into existing places. Earlier censuses referred to large cities as ‘urban areas’ and even though there were more than 100 places, less than 100 were classified as urban areas and therefore counted among the largest places.

        It is definitely Paterson and always was – I know as I grew up there and it was named for William Paterson, the second governor of NJ, a Supreme Court Justice and a signer of the US Constitution.

    Metairie shouldn’t be accepted. It’s a CDP, not a city.

    Could you please accept “Nantucket” for “Sherburne”? Sherburne was the old name of Nantucket.
