New York ZIP Code Map

WYNC’s Data News Team recently put together a map to show which areas of the Five Boroughs attract more out-of-towners—individuals who moved to New York City from other cities, states, or countries.  They’ve compiled two maps using 5 years worth of demographic data.

Areas with large amounts of out-of-towners include Manhattan’s Financial District, the East Village, and Murray Hill.  Not surprisingly, there are also clusters of out-of-towners around world-renowned New York colleges like NYU and Columbia.

On the other side of the coin, out-of-towners make up only four percent of the population in the other boroughs—Brooklyn, Staten Island, the Bronx, and Queens.  Something rather striking about this data, as pointed out by writer Henry Grabar, is how much the “immigrant areas” of New York have changed.  “The area once known as Little Italy has scarcely over one percent its population coming from abroad — lower SoHo has seven times that percentage.”
