Census data is interesting and wonderful and incredibly useful for all sorts of reasons. However, it isn’t always easy to track down exactly what you’re looking for–long lists of numbers tend to just run together like those code streams in The Matrix after a while.
But not to worry. The NY Department of City Planning has taken all the data, and added it to a map. And maps make everything better.
It’s a pretty great tool, with options to get comparative statistics from both the 2000 and 2010 censuses based on neighborhood, census tract, or specific street address. Take it home. Chew it. It’s delicious.
