You may notice two different numbers: there's 38,113 at the top, and over 900,000 Places indicated in the table above. The lower number excludes the hundreds of thousands of Places we hide from the map: Census blocks and Census tract boundaries from 2010. We use those boundaries in the background to gather demographic information and incentives, but they aren't useful when looking for a Place so we've hidden them. If you really are looking for either of these Place types, contact us and we'll show you how to access them.
