Density is a good test, but not the only one. I think a classic "if it quacks 
like a duck, it must be a duck" way to figure out if you live in a truly urban 
area is to check to see if you are within walking distance of a metro bus 
line(s) or trolley that runs at least every 30-40 minutes during morning and 
evening rush, if not more often.  And, of course, if you are located within 
about a half mile of a subway, you are urban.
