Another Pretty Map of Us

by Liz Colville

The New York Times shares some impressive interactive map action today called “Mapping America: Every City, Every Block,” plotting the Census Bureau’s American Community Survey, which uses data from 2005 to 2009. You can look at the country’s racial and ethnic makeup, as well as other indicators like income and education. Things are white. Also, apparently no one lives in Greenwood Cemetery or Prospect Park or Central Park. What a waste of space.
