    There's overlap. My "village" (not just the incorporated village) but unincorporated adjacent areas all in the same postal code and school system, where I've lived for a few decades, has between 7-8,000 people. It's part of (there's no "break" of open space or land) and contiguous with my administrative "town" of 225,000 people, in a "county" (again no "break" of open land) of 1.4 million, then part of an Island of 7-8 million more, and a city of millions upon millions, so it would be very misleading.

    It's a very suburban neighborhood, lawns and trees and shrubs, only one relatively small school system, i.e. only a couple of hundred kids in the graduating high school class, although there's also a Catholic school, it's own shopping area as well as access to other shopping near by, and I know a LOT of the people who live here. It really does feel like a small town, with all the pluses and minuses.

    I've also lived in a small Italian rural village of 500 people, a small, quintessential American town of 70,000, and New York City (9 million and counting).
