Yes, we now live in a city. This is a fact about which I seem to be constantly amazed.
Here’s a visualization that I think might help explain my state of wonderment more concretely. Each bar represents a zip code I’ve lived in from birth to the present (L to R). The height of the bar represents the population density of that zip code. Yeah.
Here’s the raw data:
|City, State||Zip Code||Density (P/mi2)|
|Hyde Park, NY||12538||508|
|Chapel Hill, NC||27516||297|
|Santa Rosa, CA||95401||1,648|
|San Francisco, CA||94109||45,973|
