Manhattan vs. Wal-Mart

The hike of Manhattan tip-to-tip is great because we suddenly recognize the massive scale of  this island that is so often dismissed as a small sliver of land.  If we hike straight through, it takes 6 hours and we hardly see anything.  The width alone makes it a much richer place than we sometimes realize.

So I was fascinated when ArchiDose linked over to Jesse LeCavalier's posting comparing Wal-Mart's footprint with the island.
