New York in a Single Crowd

Find Self-Storage

It’s not hard to find a crowd in New York. Wander down to Times Square, take the Q train at rush hour, or swing by the latest rainbow cronut macaroon place in Williamsburg, and you’re sure to see a large gathering of people. New York is big, busy, and there are a lot of opportunities for crowds to form.

But what if you got every New Yorker, all 8.4 million of them, together in one crowd? What would that look like? How much space would they take up? These are some of the things we think about at SpareFoot, so we mapped it. And then we pushed further: what if you divided the crowd by gender? Or by race, or age, or other demographic factors? Check out our infographic below to find out.
