I do not pretend that this is a complete list as far as the city demonyms go. If you would like to have more cities added, please /msg me. Because the US is such a large country, unless it is a unique city or name (such as the Key West example above), please ensure that the city has a population of 100,000 or greater, otherwise the length of this writeup will be out of control.

Thanks to -brazil-, briglass, Chris-O, drinkypoo, eventualdave, fuzzy and blue, generic-man, ianah0, Ignis, Killio, Pint, randombit, Segnbora-t, sekicho, and water for their input.
