Apparently Size Does Not Matter
I heard on Keith Olbermann last night that Zucotti Park is about 3/5ths of an acre. I had no idea.
But just to give you some perspective how small that park is I will explain.
An acre is unit of measure that, if it were a square, would measure 212.5 feet on each side. But as most acres tend not to be square, an acre really is a piece of the earth that is 45,156.25 square feet.
Three-fifths of that is 27,094 or a piece of ground that is 150’ X 181’
Not really all that big – and the attention of the world or at least the United States is focused on that piece of ground.
