Very Small Array created this fun map that shows which U.S. states have populations similar to the populations of NYC's boroughs. For reference, according to 2000 Census numbers, the populations of the boroughs are: Bronx-1.332 million; Brooklyn-2.465 million; Manhattan-1.537 million; Queens-2.229 million; and Staten Island 443,728. And here's more population fun from the U.S. Census Bureau's 2007 estimates. [Via Curbed]
