Given the size and thin/elongated ilia as well as the urban location, I think a domestic cat and/or a raccoon are likely candidates. I'm leaning toward cat.

Just as an FYI, under the Endangered ...

See for example a Google image search for allium+flower+seeds (added 'seeds' to the search to get later stages like the one you've got). Alliums include onions and garlic (both cultivated versions you'd commonly find in a ...

The seed pod and seed on the end give it away For another partial match from a commonly cultivated plant in domestic gardens, Agapanthus seed heads look similar, though the seed pod and seeds are elongated and winged. When these dehisce at the end of seeding you can be left with a head that ...

The size (~2 inches), broad "quadrate" head, and long posterior abdomen leads me to believe this is a relative large larva of a Predaceous Diving Beetle (family Dytiscidae). The larvae are sometimes called "water tigers" due to their large mandibles and voracity as aquatic predators. One possible example: Dytiscus marginalis; Sources:...
