Greater Houston is...

...nearly as large in area as the entire state of Maryland, according to an opinion piece in the Times today.

It's also more diverse than New York or Los Angeles (my emphasis):

Houston is not merely more Hispanic; the fastest-growing ethnic group is Asian. The kimchi taco is a hit. Some 90 languages are spoken. The city government will soon publish information in six languages. And 98 percent of the population growth in the first 10 years of this century has been nonwhite.
