That’s a good point. When the Census Bureau release their 2020 UA data late this year, for the first ever we’ll probably see an increase in density in several US urban areas, probably in Boston as well.

So yes, it would be even more interesting to discuss ways on how Boston (or Atlanta) could increase density all over its urban area than insisting there’s no sprawl there. The good thing is they’re apparently doing so as central areas are growing faster than the exurban belt.
