Missed Connections: Alone in A Crowd
Have you noticed that we human beings are pretty odd? We live on the earth with 6,928,198,253 others of us. It took me a second to even say that number correctly. It is a lot of people. Yet, we act like we the rest of us aren’t there, even when we are right next to, or in front of each other.
Nowhere is this more palpable than in New York City, with a population of 8,175,133, and a geographic area of a mere 302.643 square miles. That is 27,012 people per square mile – not counting the people who travel in to work or shop or tour the city each day. Kind of hard to imagine, isn’t it?
