Want to know if your neighborhood is the site of a cockroach infestation? That's where Roach Map comes in. Updated every Monday, it takes data from restaurant inspections from the previous week and lays out which zip codes had the highest number of, um, wildlife sightings. In Brooklyn, beware the bugs of South Ozone Park; while 10270, a.k.a. Wall Street, currently has the highest incidence in Manhattan. (Shudder. Financiers, pul-leeze clean your office buildings.) For the methodologically inclined, here's how they make the map. [Roach Map via Bowery Boogie]
