  1. You forgot like half of the German cities … Hamburg (1,8 mil), Cologne (1 mil) Frankfurt (700.000), Düsseldorf, Leipzig, Dresden, Essen …

  2. You’ve missed some reasonably large cities eg Auckland has about, 1.4M (urban area) or 400k (Auckland City). Either way it should make the cut. And Oakland, for that matter. And so on.
