city comparison

As looked on (the best website ever, with FORUMS!), here is why "out West" seems so fronkin' big to me (and adds up the miles on the odometer):

Boston land area (sq mi): 48.4
Pittsburgh land area: 55.6
Portland land area: 134.3

Yeah okay, that refreshes the ol' memory! Vancouver is 42.8 sq mi . . . . more like home, I guess, but Boston would kill for all this empty and sprawled :( space! Boston squeezes more population than Portland into 1/3 the space. Aw, I miss it!
