7. It's the biggest city in the contiguous US
That’s cute, New York, how you claim to be the biggest city in America just because you’ve got some really tall buildings and they film The Maury Show nearby. But do you have 874.6 square miles of golf courses, waterways, marshlands, and beaches? No, because the only city with that much space is Jacksonville, where there’re only 1,100 people, or roughly the population of a NYC subway car during rush hour, per square mile.
