Town

A town is a human settlement larger than a village but smaller than a city. The size definition for what constitutes a "town" varies considerably in different parts of the world, so that, for example, many "small towns" in the United States would be regarded as villages in the United Kingdom, while many British "small towns" would qualify as cities in the United States.

Famous quotes containing the word town:

    Tiresome heart, forever living and dying,
    House without air, I leave you and lock your door.
    Wild swans, come over the town, come over
    The town again, trailing your legs and crying!
    Edna St. Vincent Millay (1892–1950)

    That’s a sucker game, Doc. There’s probably fifty fellows around town just waitin’ to see you get liquored up, so they can fill ya full of holes. Build themselves up a great reputation—the man that killed Doc Holliday.
    Samuel G. Engel (1904–1984)

    It is an old saying in the town that “most any fellow with a chaw in his jaw can sit on his front porch and spit down the chimney of a neighbor’s house.”
    —Administration in the State of Ariz, U.S. public relief program (1935-1943)
