The Whole World Could Fit in Texas, If the World Lived Like New Yorkers
We've always complained that there are too many people in New York City, but we didn't realize the extent of the problem until now. This graphic from Per Square Mile represents how much space the earth's 6.9 billion residents would take up if they all lived in a giant city with the population density of NYC. Fortunately, we're not even the most tightly packed populace; if everyone lived like Parisians, we would only occupy just 127,930 square miles (compared to New Yorkers' 250,404 square miles).
