25 Most Populated Cities in the US

During the pandemic we could see thousands of ghost-towns everywhere across the United States, due to the self-isolation, and at such a time we wouldn’t think how crowded these cities are on an average day; this made us to bring Insider Monkey’s brand new article about the 25 most populated cities in the US. What’s more, the coronavirus spread faster in the most populated cities, such as New York., as we could see its heroic struggle against the pandemic.

Some kind of modern urbanization is happenning, as more and more people tend to move around and into the large cities, in order to live in the outskirts and have a more prosperous future. As we have written in our former articles, lots of companies outsource producing into other countries, where workforce is cheaper and the laws are permissive. Consequently more and more people lose their jobs in the United States, who then leave their former residence and concentrate around larger towns and cities in the hope of a better life. We can see industry-specific cities, such as Chicago [manufacturing], San Francisco [technology], New York [finance], and Houston [energy].

We must remark this list is based on fresh estimates. And now, without a further ado, let’s have a look at the  25 most populated cities in the US.
