Craigslist sites are used in major cities in the United States including New York, Boston, Chicago, Los Angeles and Washington D.C., in addition to Houston, Atlanta, and Miami. Foreign cities that use Craigslist sites include London, Paris, Rome, Tokyo and Bejiing as well as Shanghai and Melbourne.
Craigslist.com has sites established in all 50 U.S. states as well as the District of Columbia and in the U.S. territories of Guam-Micronesia, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
In addition to its strong presence in North America, Craigslist.com is established globally with sites in Latin America, Europe, Asia, Africa and Oceania.
While some places with denser populations have Craigslist sites set up for metropolitan areas, regional sites connect users in more rural areas such as the Finger Lakes in New York or the South Coast region of Massachusetts.
Craigslist.com lets users post free ads on national, regional or city sites in categories that include community, housing, jobs, for sale and services, among others. Listings are then filtered into subcategories to make it easier for those searching. Discussion forums cover a range of topics from politics to poetry. Craigslist also offers users links to nearby Craigslist sites to let them search for ads or forums of interest.
