On his blog Vizynary, analytics whiz kid Chris Walker, who says that he's "storytelling with data," posted an interactive map showing changes in residential real estate values between 2008 and 2012 based on a thorough number-crunching of 958,000 properties. The deep green areas are where prices have jumped the most (think Williamsburg, Harlem, West Chelsea, Inwood, Coney Island, Hudson Yards-ish), while the dark red areas are where properties' values have fallen (Ridgewood, Elmhurst, Ozone Park, and Brownsville, to name a few). On the map, mouse over the different zip codes to to see exactly how much prices leapt or plummeted. Depending on where you live?or where you want to buy?your heart just might do the very same thing.
