Sorry, everyone — but Manhattan is small

Several reminders from Harper’s Index for July 2018 (yeah, I know, I’m way behind because of minor distractions like the #ReignoftheMadDon and collateral activity involving Julian Assange, et al):

Estimate combined square footage of all the self-storage units in the United States: 1,670,000,000.

Factor by which this area is larger than the borough of Manhattan: 2.6

Number of US states that ban the sale of fake urine: 21 (just threw that in because)

Percentage of New York City’s sewage that is shipped out of the city for disposal: 85

Number of weeks a train filled with New York City sewage was stuck outside an Alabama town this year: 11
