Aztecs had about 35,000and 75,000 population wise.There might have been 100,000 people if nearby cities and towns on the mainland are included .Right now, a population of 50,000 for the city proper seems almost reasonable .Yet the population estimate of 500,000 people living in 5.4 square miles would have a density of about 96,000 people per square mile .
