Talk about density and urban planning!
Since I'm not sure everyone can read the text, here's what it says from left to right across the page after this header line:
There are about 300,000,000 of us in the USA, spread out over 3,794,101 sq miles. . .
But let's say we all wanted to live in 1 sate together, comfortably.
Using the density of Brooklyn, NY as an example: at about 35,000 people to a square mile. . .
What state wold we all fit into?
In other words if we wanted to we could all move into and live in an area the size of New Hampshire; the 5th smallest US state (8,968 sq miles) with extra room for more parks. (because Brooklyn cold use more)
And if the area were square, it would be about 100 miles wide. You could ride a bike to the other side for the "country" in a day. Our "green belt" would be the rest of the USA. Not only would we all have access to mass transit and live in spaces with small footprints, the need for Air travel would be greatly reduced. You'd only fly when leaving the country. WE'D ALL BE NEIGHBORS.
What do you think? Any urban planners out there?
