A new chart created by the team at CNNMoney can measure the personal bubbles of residents of famous cities, from Tokyo to Manila to Berlin. Simply by scrolling over the name of a city, this interactive chart will tell users how many square feet they would have to themselves if they visited that city.

Some of the chart's results are pretty shocking. Paris, for instance, has less square feet available per person than the infamously crowded New York City. In fact, New York has more personal space for its residents than Manila and Tokyo combined.

With this chart, it's easy to get an idea of which cities are overpopulated and which offer a ton of freedom to move about. A city like Mumbai, which has only 470 square feet per person, might deter crowd-wary people from visiting. St. Petersburg, on the other hand, is perfect for people looking for a lot of time to themselves with 3,090 square feet per person.

This interactive chart is wonderfully innovative. It not only provides some neat tidbits of information about iconic cities, but also provides information regarding these cities' economies and ways of life.
