And now for something completely different, here's a pair of interactive maps from the New York Times. Im a bit of a Geographic information Systems kinda guy so I'm a sucker for a good old interactive map. Plus points for demographic info.
New York Times Immigration Explorer - Watch how the foreign born settled into the U.S from 1880 forward. Tell me it aint cool.
Taxi cab pickups in Manhattan (below 60th street) by day and hour - Like blood circulating through the city. Watch those late night weekend location to see where the drunken revelry happens.
