Does It Feel A Bit Crowded?

You have to love the U.S. Census. Curbed LA covers the Census Bureau's recent designation of the Los Angeles/Long Beach area as the nation's densest, with 7,000 people per square mile. San Francisco/Oakland came in 2nd with 6,626 psm. And we wonder why it's hard to find a place to live? San Jose is 3rd with 5,829 psm, while New York City/Newark came in at 5th place for density with 5,319 psm while remaining in 1st place for population overall. Apparently now some 80.7% of Americans live in urban areas. Worth a read if only for the Curbed LA commenters arguing about public transit. [Curbed LA]
