The three most populated cities in the United States are New York, Los Angeles and Chicago. Here is a list of the top 15 most populated cities in the US.
The population of a city resides within the boundaries of the municipality. Cities such as Philadelphia, Detroit and San Francisco have less area compared to the modern cities such as Houston. Detroit is one city that is depopulating and its current population is only half of its population in the 1950s.
A recent report shows that the population of Detroit has dropped below San Jose. Jacksonville and Indianapolis have climbed to the 12th and 13th positions respectively, as they have combined the city government with the county government.
In the history of the United States, only ten cities have ever had a population over one million.
