Maps Reveal A Starkly Segregated NYC


"Using census data, a Chicago grad student and blogger has created an interesting series of maps to examine the racial breakdown of New York City. Intrigued by a University of Michigan study suggesting that New York is the second-most-segregated metropolitan area in the U.S. (exceeded only by Milwaukee), Daniel Hertz drew up a map revealing large swaths of NYC where less than ten percent of residents are white. He then combined that with a map showing which areas are less than ten percent black.”

While the metal framework demands conformity, the glass reflections seem to explode, almost in defiance of this structure and, in the end, seem to transcend their captors."
