Find New York City's Subway Deserts in This Awesome Interactive Map

It said that you can get close to anywhere in New York City by subway.

In this awesome map local urbanist, mapmaker, and data junkie Chris Whong tests that statement by color-coding every location that is within a 10 minute walk of a subway station. The result is a neat glimpse into the areas with a scarcity of subway stations, a.k.a. “Subway Deserts.”

This map shows the combined areas forming a 10-minute “walkshed” around NYC’s 470 subway stations. The walkshed has been given the same styling as the water areas, revealing the “subway deserts” of New York
