Mapping How NYC’s Housing Market Spurs Population Change

Nonprofit organization Citizens Housing & Planning Council (CHPC) has put together a compelling interactive map that explores demographic changes by neighborhood throughout the five boroughs between 2000 and 2010. The map shows the movement of 14 groups of populations, defined by variables like race, age, and income. It also reveals what neighborhoods different populations moved to and who assumed their place, and how different groups have grown or shrank. The map and the study that accompanies it is part of an extensive effort made by CHPC along with the New York State Association for Affordable Housing to reveal how New Yorkers are answering to housing availability and economic changes on the neighborhood level.
