New Yorker Interactive Graphic – Inequality & NYC Subways


Though this graphic by Larry Buchanan for The New Yorker speaks for itself, there are so many tidbits of info that specifically caught my eye. The disparities between Manhattan are astonishing, but not as surprising as the disparities between the West and East sides of Manhattan. Take a look below, click one of the subway lines, and enjoy this UI that makes income inequality fun to play with!


Side Note: A great addition to this piece would be to show how these income disparities have shifted and widened over history. Many of these lines have existed for over a century and chronicling their history with regards to relative incomes would be a powerful statement.
