So ~400 square miles, thank you!  I wonder what the current population of pre-consolidation Nashville is today and how it compares to Memphis.

I think that's a decent estimate...just by eyeing it.  We should also consider that if that land was flat like Rutherford or Wilson, Davidson (Nashville) would easily have another 200k residents within the limits because there would be many people who live in the suburbs who would love to live that much closer to downtown.

Fixed that for you.   LOL

I was being facetious.  I don't want anyone to think I was being serious about it being a wasteland. :D

Absolutely fascinating info @UTgrad09!!!  Thank you so much for putting that all together.  It really helps to put things into perspective for sure.  The Urban Services District number, in terms of population, density, and overall area, is probably the closest we can come to a 'true Nashville' data set.

But there should be a sidewalk all along that street. For shame! 

Dare I even say anything about those $#!++% telephone poles?

There should be sidewalks along a lot of strrets in Urban Nashville ,but 50 years ago or whenever they formed Metro, they didnt know how to spell sidewalk.

There actually is sidewalk on both sides, it's an extra-wide buffer there.

What's weird is that in almost every town in America (I'm talking even small towns of 2-3000 people), the older parts of town have sidewalk infrastructure from long ago...but then there's almost a line where sidewalks ended when newer homes were built in later years.  There was an obvious moment in history where American cities stopped building sidewalks in just about every community.

I miss those upward spotlights-they were like Batman’s six beams in the night! 

They still use them.
