In 1800 Washington+Georgetown+Alexandria would have been the 6th largest city in the country. Individually each of them was among the largest 30 or so, and were all larger than any city in what is now the midwest.
Also, the despite the claims of those who are eager to deny the right to vote to more than 700,000 Washington residents, in 1800, the residents of Washington, Georgetown, and Alexandria (which was then part of DC) were able to vote for their representative to Congress. So, when people say that the Constitution prevents 700,000 of your fellow Americans from enjoying the democratic rights and responsibilities that every other American enjoys, they are either full of it or don't know what they are talking about.
