What were the biggest cities that Perot performed well (ie above his national PV average of 19%) in 1992? Were there any big cities (say over 100k or even 50k) where he was second place?

St Lucie County probably is not an urban area, but Perot did fairly well there. Hillsborough and Pinellas were good performances as well.

I don't have access to detailed county level precinct results from '92, but here is his performance in the largest cities in Oregon in order of '16 Population (Precinct level data):

1.) Portland--- 18.4% Perot
2.) Salem--     21.7% Perot
3.) Eugene--- 18.0% Perot
4.) Gresham-- 24.4% Perot
5.) Hillsboro-- 26.6% Perot
6.) Beaverton--23.4% Perot
7.) Bend--- 26.1% Perot
8.) Medford-- 23.0% Perot
9.) Springfield-- 26.4% Perot
10.) Corvallis-- 19.3% Perot
11.) Albany-- 28.5% Perot
12.) Tigard--- 23.9% Perot
13.) Lake Oswego-- 19.6% Perot
14.) Keizer-- 23.6% Perot
15.) Grants Pass--- 22.7% Perot

If we look at incorporated "cities" in Oregon where Perot captured 30.0% of the vote or more, I have a list of 35 "cities", with the vast majority of them with <5,000 residents.

If drill down the list and look at cities that Perot won in '92 we see the following list:

1.) Scio (Linn County)- 35.7% Perot
2.) Boardman (Morrow County)- 34.2% Perot


He placed 2nd in the following cities:

1.) Pilot Rock- (Umatilla County)--- 35.1%
2.) Carlton- (Yamhill County)--   35.0%
3.) Depoe By--- (Lincoln County)- 34.6%
4.) Oak Ridge--- (Lane County)  33.7%
5.) Yoncalla--- (Douglas County)--- 33.5%
6.) Athena-- (Umatilla County)--- 33.3%     (Split Precinct)
7.) Jefferson- (Linn County)-- 33.0%
8.) Vernonia- (Columbia County)- 32.6%
9.) Aumsvilla- (Marion County)-   32.6%
10.) Shady Cove- (Josephine Count)- 32.6%
11.) Brookings- (Curry County)--- 32.5%
12.) Brownsville- (Linn County)--- 32.3%
13.) Union-- (Union County)--- 32.2%
14.) Waldport- (Lincoln County)-- 32.2%
15.) Oakland--- (Douglas County) - 32.0%
16.) Gold Hill--- (Josephine County)- 31.8%
17.) Stanfield- (Umatilla County)--- 31.8%    (Split Precinct)
18.) Canyonville- (Douglas County)-- 31.7%
19.) Powers--- (Coos County)--- 31.7%
20.) Bay City-- (Tillamook County)- 31.4%
21.) Elgin-- (Union County)--- 31.3%
22.) Port Orford- (Curry County)-- 30.8%
23.) Canyon City- (Douglas County)-- 30.8%
24.) Falls City-- (Dallas County)--- 30.3%
25.) North Plains--- (Washington County)--- 30.1%
26.) Myrtle Creek---(Douglas County) 29.6%
27.) Toledo--- (Lincoln County)--- 29.1%
28.) Rainier-- (Columbia County)-- 29.1%
29.) St Helens-- (Columbia County)-- 28.7%
30.) Riddle-- (Douglas County)-- 28.6%
31.) Siletz-- (Lincoln County)== 28.6%

Now, eyeballing that list, it looks like the City in Oregon with the largest population, where Perot placed 1st or 2nd, would be St Helens (Columbia County) with a current pop of about 13k.... Many of the other cities on the list are current/former Timber Mill towns.

Although Perot overall performed extremely well in Oregon, taking votes from both Mondale/Dukakis voters from '84 and '88, he also did quite well among Reagan '84/Bush Sr '88 voters as well....

This is a whole separate topic that I was planning to explore on a different thread, also looking at the Obama '08/'12/Trump '16 swings in certain smaller communities, but at least here's what I can offer for now to this conversation.
