Manhattan Address Numbers Analyzed and Mapped

Ben Wellington, a Visiting Assistant Professor at Pratt's School of Architecture,
recently analyzed and mapped out all the address numbers in Manhattan and discovered some interesting traits.

It turns out that 15 is the most common address number in Manhattan, with 179 distinct addresses. The plot also shows that numbers cluster around 5s and 10s more often then other numbers. There is also a sudden drop in unlucky 13 on the chart!
