Honolulu (Small? Big?) Town


for best results click and linger!

"Delusions of grandeur

make me feel a lot better

about myself."

"Many people will walk in and out of your life,

but only true friends

will leave footprints in your heart."

Just two guys talking

“I had some eyeglasses.

I was walking down the street

when suddenly the prescription ran out.”

"Coming for the girl in the tower

For the one who brings the king down to his knees

And drives me crazy with her mystical power"

Benji Hughes, lyric, A Love Extreme


Some folks like to say that our Honolulu

is the 12th largest city in America.

They point out that the legal area of the City & County of Honolulu


the entire island of Oahu

and the various Northwestern Hawaiian Islands.

If you consider the population of that area

then, yes,

we are the 12th largest city.


The U.S. Census calls the urban part of Oahu

i.e. Honolulu

a "census designated place"

that ranks 50th among American cities

with a 2009 population

of 375,571.*

Honolulu Town looks like a vest-pocket city,

tucked between green mountains

and the sea

and it is!

A city of neighborhoods,
and landmarks:
nature's as well as human-made.

All in a compact parcel of paradise.

(visitors please avoid and disregard the
less-than-lovely bits)

We are SO much more

than one of life's great beaches!

*NOT including the seabirds, Hawaiian Monk Seals,
or turtles
residing in the Northwest Hawaiian Islands.
