A lil comparison between MY hometown of Clifton, NC and Steve's hometown of Berkeley, NJ.
Clifton is 54.49 sq miles.
Berkeley is 55.8 sq miles. Steve also mentioned that he lives in the 'rural/low population' part of Berkeley.
Close enough in size right?
Clifton has 1,635 people.
Berkeley has 42,664 people.
Look at the two pictures below from Google Earth that show an overhead satellite photo.
Clifton first- in case you didnt figure that out.
Now I know why his dad was so impressed by the lack of people.
