We’re ready to look at a map that has more colors than just red and blue. In this interactive map by Jill Hubley, you can see which language New Yorkers speak at home. Pulling data from the Census’ American Community Survey, it breaks down the boroughs into 33 languages and categories.

The majority of NYC neighborhoods speak English at home, followed by Spanish, Chinese, Yiddish and Russian. You can also see what the map looks like with English excluded, or with English and Spanish languages excluded. Check out the full interactive map here
