The Cockroach Map of NYC


07.24.13 Andy Cush

Possibly more relevant to your life than the Starbucks map: a regularly updated cockroach map of NYC’s zip codes first launched in 2010, based on how many roaches are turned up by restaurant inspectors in a given week. This week, 10473, encompassing Clason Point, Shore Haven, and Castle Hill in the Bronx is the worst, and 11211, one of Williamsburg’s trendiest sections, is the best. 10036, where ANIMAL’s offices are located, isn’t too shabby–coming in at 176 of the city’s 185 zip codes. See the full map for this week below, with more detailed statistics here.
