    Where I live, Northern California, there are two cities listed with a population of zero, Little Grass Valley and Almanor. Many towns and cities in the northern half of the state have fewer than 100 people.

    Of course we also have San Jose, which to my knowledge has SCADS of people ;)

    Where are your small towns/villages?

    Who said Manhattan is an island anymore? Can't you walk across the hardened oil and floating garbage around Manhattan and walk to surrounding areas, you know, like a land bridge of sorts? ;)

    I live next to the smallest town in England, Bashall Town. It's smaller than most villages with a population of <100 .

    My village is small, maybe 15 houses or so.

    The smallest named region closest to me is our house/land. It used to contain 6 small houses and so became a pob. So that would be a population of 5.

    There are small villages dotted around these hills; Pob Green, Diglea, Hartshead all have less than 10 houses each.

    I have no idea what the hell it is to be honest. I know it's just one street with some houses on it. I don't think it's a real city, it's just a bunch of rich people who have nothing better to do with their money than become a separate village. I drive past it on my way to work...well, I guess I should say I drive past the gated entrance they use to keep filthy middle class beggars like myself out :rolleyes:

    According to Wikipedia, it's a little town called Bicknell, Utah. Population 353! Funny thing is that my Aunt and Uncle used to live there, it was nice.

    But I happen to know about the city of Scofield, Utah which has a population of 26!

    I've been there once, it's on the shore of a reservoir, and the site of a terrible mining accident during the 19th century. Dust in a coal mine ignited and caused the main mine shaft to serve as a very very large canon. Men and mining equipment were found 3 miles away on the other side of the valley apparently!

    The smallest incorporated town in my county is Gila Bend with a little over 2k people, so says Wikipedia.

    It's a bit difficult to think of another one nearby. I live in the Phoenix Metro area, which is made up entirely of sprawl. What used to be small towns is now just another part of the Phoenix Metro area. Although Gila Bend is about an hour and a half from me, there is very little open land between me and the town.

    The East Riding is predominately rural, and there are a lot of hamlets and even single homes dotted about. I wouldn't like to guess as to which is the smallest.

    On the other end of the scale, just outside of Hull – and now to all extents and purposes a suburb, but don't tell the residents that as they get upset – is Cottingham, reckoned to be the largest village in England. It has a population of about 17,000.

    I live about 6 miles away from a village called Ashkirk, apparently it only has a population of just over 100.

    That's something new I've learned today :rolleyes:

    P.S. Found a small village called Roxburgh which only has a population of 70 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Roxburgh)

    I think its Hana, about 47 miles away (according to Google Earth at least).

    Its quite a little place. Aside from a few tourist attraction stuff, its very quite. It has about 700 people though, much bigger than some of yours. :p

    I live in Australia, most of our "towns" are just a pub and a post office and they're run by the couple that own the pub.

    With only two houses, you would think it would make some sense to put a little distance between them. :)

    The smallest town in my county back at home (I'm in college now) is the Village of New Grand Chain with a population of 233. I should also note that New Grand Chain is my hometown and my dad is actually the Mayor. :D
