Historically Large US Cities

Name the US cities that have appeared in the top 50 at least once in the US census records since 1820.
I've excluded totals from 1790 to 1810 due to a lack of 100 listed cities
Highly recommend to zoom on the East Coast
Some cities do not exist anymore, and are greyed out below. Cities with under 100k population as of the 2020 census is colored in with blue
