Site Lets Us Obsessively Track Who Can Afford To Live Where

New, 9 comments

We're pretty excited about Envisioning Development, a clickable map that tracks the median incomes for families of four in New York City's neighborhoods and what percentage of families can afford to rent one-, two-, and three-bedroom apartments in those neighborhoods. Felix Salmon points out that those who turn to this map to pick their next neighborhood are most likely to end up in Brooklyn Heights/Fort Greene, where the income distribution is closest to even. But if you're more interested in getting the most mindwarping experience possible out of this thing, try clicking on the Upper East Side and then East Harlem, or Chelsea/Clinton/Midtown and then Stuyvesant Town/Turtle-Bay.
