The Burbank, California entry with an ID of 5331836 I believe to be a false entry.

There is a real city of Burbank in California, but this is more than a hundred miles to the south of San Jose. This entry (5331835) seems to be correct.

Both are correct.
Here for instance the wikipedia article for the one you think does not exist:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Burbank%2C_Santa_Clara_County%2C_California

Oh, okay. I'd never heard of a Census Designated Place before.

Thanks for the quick response!
