In my opinion, the city with population of 500,000 is NOT a small city at all.

It is a medium-sized city, neither a big city nor a small city.
No one can call a small city to city with population of 500,000 here in korea.

Agreed. Buffalo has an impressive skyline, but it is not really a small city. It's not a big city anymore, but most of the skyline was built at a time when it was still one of the largest cities in the country. Even with it's decline, it still is a large city. When I saw this category, I was thinking cities like Springfiled, IL or Baton Rouge or Shreveport.

May I ask a question, what is the limit of population to say that a city is a "small city"?

Mar del Plata, Argentina
population: 541.733

It seems fairly broadly defined. The thread starter even included Orlando. Orlando had 2,082,421 people in 2009. I don't consider that small. He may have meant city population instead of metropolitan population, but that's a silly measuring stick to use.

City definitions of size don't make sense because city boundaries don't always reflect the true population of the area. Montréal has over 4 million people, but is technically made up of 16 cities just on the island of Montréal which are little more than political divisions. The City of Westmount is an enclave of Montréal that's 4.02 sq km and situated right downtown. There are only 20,494 people within the borders of the City of Westmount, but it contains Westmount Square. It's hardly fair to call this a city of 20,494 when it's really just a part of metropolitan Montréal, population 4,014,700 (2009 projection).

Westmount Square:

There are a further 74 cities and towns off the island of Montréal that you would have to add to make up that 4 million+ figure. Metropolitan population is the only measure that makes sense.
