Mapping Inequity, One NYC Subway Line At a Time
Everyone knows that NYC, like most other big cities, has an income distribution issue, but never before has it been broken down in the way this New Yorker interactive map does it. Designed by Larry Buchanan, the map "Inequality and New York’s Subway" lets you choose a specific subway line and maps out the distribution of wealth as you travel along that line. No surprise, the places with the highest income are in or around Midtown, with average incomes dipping dramatically as you reach the outskirts of the map. If you can numb yourself to the staggering implications of the data, it’s a pretty cool interactive map.

    This is cool and clever. Of course there may be some bias as to where they put the stations in the first place, but...
