What U.S. state has only 2 escalators in the entire state?
According to reports from NPR, the state of Wyoming is home to only two sets of escalators, both of them located in banks in the city of Casper. With a statewide population estimated at 572,381, that equates to about 0.0000035 escalators per capita. Needless to say, that is a national low. There is no single explanation behind the anti-escalation anomaly, but one might have to do with the shape of the state itself. For many buildings in Wyoming, it’s easier to build outward than upward. “I think land is probably cheaper,” says Sue Goodman in the Sheridan, Wyoming City Planning Office. Instead of building up, “we spread out.”
