The good people of WNYC (who have been killing it lately) bring you this nice-looking graph of the languages spoken by New York City residents. Using Census Bureau information, they plotted each language based on how many New Yorkers speak it at home and how many of its speakers are also proficient in English.

Perhaps the most notable result: though its still the most dominant language, just 51 percent of residents speak English exclusively.  Spanish came in next with 1.87 million speakers, then Chinese with 419,000 and Russian with 186,000. And so on.

Check out the graph below.
