testa, I love your GIFs.

You know, in 1950 Atlanta had a population of 330,000 in only 50 square miles or so. That's a city wide density of around 6,600 p/sm.

I wonder what the population of that same area would be today? If someone had the time (and energy) to map out the census tracts that would be an interesting factoid.
