Killer Circles Invade New York City

The Digital Atlas of New York City, put together by William A. Bowen of California State University, Northridge, has a bunch of interesting maps of the Big Whatsit. This, for instance, is from the map showing the distribution of the black population in NYC:



(By the way, does that pattern look familiar?) The atlas also has maps showing income, education, and ancestry - you can see which parts of the city Dutch or Dominicans have settled in, for instance. The only drawback is that it's a bit dated. It's a problem for demographic maps for the US in 2009: the decennial census is a year away, so everything's based on data that's 9 years old.

Ah, and just now I notice that Bowen has similar atlases of Seattle, DC, Boston, Chicago, Honolulu, LA, San Francisco, San Diego, and Sacramento, as well. And also a bunch of other maps. So there you go.

Awesome. This is so interesting. As you say though, out of date. All his income info comes from 1989. He's still got all the rich white folk on
the upper east. It's a veritable
bonfire of the vanities. I think
brooklyn is going to look a whole
lot different when the new census
comes out too. Hopefully someone will
take all this data plus the new data
and make some of those awesome interactive maps.

Thanks for this, it's great.

innovation is very natural and happens in the "real world" as new plants and animals colonize new ecological niches.

I would be aware that as somebody who really doesn’t comment to blogs a lot (in actual fact, this may be my first put up), I don’t think the time period “lurker” is very flattering to a non-posting reader.
