So just how many people can fit in Manhattan? The Times sought out the answer, and it looks like at least 250,000 more. That's the number of new people expected to move to Manhattan by 2030, giving you another reason to move to Brooklyn. Manhattan's currently got 12 people per every 5,000 square feet, but at least it's not as bad as Kowloon Walled City which had 603 people in that much space in 1992. [NYT]
