How big does a place have to be before it is called a city?

It depends on which country the ( City ) is in I believe.

How big is a Super City?

Have a look here: http://www.citymayors.com/features/largest_cities1.html
Over twenty cities have more people than the whole of New Zealand!
Wasn't there an old definition that a city was somewhere big enough to have its own cathedral?

A city has a cathedral.

That is the English definition.

Which ( of course ) does not apply in NZ.

A city has a cathedral.

That is the English definition.Which of course is nonesense.

eg Ponsonby had a cathedral, and its just a small town.

Ponsomby is in Auckland.

The Cambridge English Dictionary defines 'city' as 'a large town' or 'any town in the UK which has a cathedral'.

And it applies to NZ.

I thought it was once any village over 10k pop, or a cathedral, which let Nelson pretend it was important years before it will happen. (Caves, no matter how sunny don't count.)
