Thanks to the support of the good folks at the New York Times and the National Science Foundation, you can now enjoy Social Explorer's Race Map of New York City. Wondering how many Asians there were in Staten Island in 1940? The information is at your fingertips! There are plenty of other fun and functional uses for the site, and we want to congratulate the Times for its sponsorship: While they may be cutting back on the softball-related expenses, at least their reporters can now easily find out, you know, where all the black folks are at.
Speaking of diversity, check out the team behind the map!
It is indeed a gorgeous mosaic.
