Today in utterly fascinating and thoroughly depressing pieces: Using data from the last census, The New Yorker created an interactive infographic that charts median incomes in New York City along each of its subway lines. Not surprisingly, the income disparity among boroughs is staggering: You see a stark difference along the 2 line, for example, where the highest median income ($205,192) can be found near the Park Pl and Chambers St stations, and the lowest ($13,750) is at E 180th St in the Bronx. The whole thing is fascinating and well worth a look.
