Brooklyn based software engineer and data visualizer Jill Hubley recently created an interesting project called Languages of NYC that maps out the City's most frequently spoken language in each Zip Code.

I initially created this map for a GISMO exhibit at the Queens Museum, "Map Mosaic: From Queens to the World". There, the map existed in print form and focused only on Queens.

To create the map Hubley aggregated data from the 2014 United States Census Data, available on American Factfinder.

Once you uncheck English and Spanish (the two languages that dominate the map), what other languages are most frequently spoken in your neighborhood?
