WNYC put together a "Map Your Moves" census, and made some nifty looking data visualization charts. One of them focused on where people went after being forced to move due to high rents. A majority of people forced to move in Manhattan either relocated on the island or decided to call it quits and move to Brooklyn. In another, a poll of 1600 New Yorkers, 113 moved to accommodate a bigger family, 5.3% moved due to relationship issues, and 13 moved for love. The best moment one came in the form of a burn on Staten Island, asking people to divulge why they moved to the "other" island. "Only marriage takes you to Staten Island" and "Parents moved...so I had to move with 'em" were among the reasons. Check them all out here.
