Does it means something to list 932 towns on one page ? I think we should transform this page in a : List of towns in New York by county. --Revas 10:56, 12 July 2005 (UTC)

That should be a part of every individual county article. I don't know if that's the case, but I made sure Westchester County, New York contains that data. Nelson Ricardo 16:56, July 12, 2005 (UTC)

Unfortunately, this list still contains poor or bad links. Stepp-Wulf 05:20, 13 February 2006 (UTC).

Checked[edit]

I checked out every single county and town in New York. I found that eight of them in this list were not in template pages for the counties named here for those towns. I fixed six of them. I am not clear about two others: Clermont and Dansville. hello (talk) 22:32, 5 December 2009 (UTC)

Added[edit]

I added Lyonsdale (in Lewis County), Pitcairn (in St. Lawrence County), and Tuscarora (in Steuben County) to the template pages for those counties, because this page says they are towns, the pages themselves say they are towns, and they seem that they may be distinct towns. I cannot be sure of this. hello (talk) 22:32, 5 December 2009 (UTC)

Removed[edit]

From this page, I removed Eagle Bay, as it is a hamlet, not a town, in Herkimer County. From this page, I removed Glen Cove, as it is a city, not a town, in Nassau County. From this page, I removed Honeoye Falls, as it is a village, not a town, in Monroe County. hello (talk) 22:32, 5 December 2009 (UTC)

Recounted[edit]

There were 935 towns in the list, though the top of this page said there were 932. I removed three from this page. I did a simple cut of the entire page, pasted into Notepad, cutting out all but the items, then replaced each asterisk (*) with a line counting code. I verified this was correct. Then, cut this from Notepad and pasted it back into the page, finished the numbering codes, and previewed it (no save). There definitely are 932 towns in the list now. Exactly. I did the same with the pages for all villages and all cities and found no extra or missing entries and no counting errors. hello (talk) 22:32, 5 December 2009 (UTC)
