Pretty Big

Green-Wood has a population of about 560,000 souls.

So, I thought it would be interesting to take a look at comparable city populations.

According to the 2010 census, Green-Wood’s population is larger than that of any of these cities: Albuquerque, Tucson, Fresno, Sacramento, Long Beach, Mesa, Virginia Beach, Atlanta, Colorado Springs, Omaha, Raleigh, Miami, Clevelant, Tulsa, Oakland, Menneapolis, Wichita, and New Orleans.

In fact, if Green-Wood were a city, it would be the 33rd largest city in America.

That’s pretty big.
