Personal space in major cities

Andrew Bergmann’s take on population density in select cities around the world for CNN Money.

Clever, but his title is all wrong. Bergmann is measuring population density, not personal space. For example, do you count freeways and parking lots as your personal space? Probably not. To get at true personal space, he would have to calculate home sizes or something similar.
