'New Yorker' Charts Income Inequality Alongside NYC Subway Lines
Interactive graphic from Larry Buchanan highlights income disparityPublished: Apr 18, 2013
The New Yorker's Larry Buchanan pulls off a feat of dataviz with this interactive chart that shows income as it relates to the individual subway stations and lines in New York City. It's well known that NYC has a problem when it comes to income inequality -- there are people earning upwards of $200,000 (and much, much more) living and riding the same subway as those making under $15,000 (and much less.) That gap is widening, and the graphic shows those shifts, using data from the U.S. Census Bureau.
