    I assume that is not a lot, but I don´t understand numbers. As Titus Andromedon once said, they are nature´s most boring shapes.

    I would have assumed the North East was your most densely populated region but it seems the biggest cities in Rhode Island, Connecticut, New Hampshire, Delaware and Maine are all under 200,000. I mean, maybe it still is, love being someone who doesn't really understand statistics.

    I couldn't tell you why none of those long-established, easily-inhabitable lands never really produced a Big City, I guess NYC and Boston were too much of a draw for any others to really get off the ground?

    I'm no expert but I am pretty sure that this is basically the answer. Capital, especially in the industrial/heavy-manufacturing period of American capitalism, has a tendency to agglomerate. For that reason, you see massive urban metropolises start to form in the 20th century and the demographic spread of the country is still primarily determined by that fundamental socio-economic transformation.
