Alasdair Rae is a senior lecturer and researcher at the University of Sheffield in the U.K. In
his spare time, he runs a neat little blog called Under the Raedar where he performs
data analysis on a wide range of topics in order to present them in easy to understand infographics and maps.

In this map, Alasdair takes the 2010 census data for NYC Population and makes a 3D graphic showing the areas of the city where most
of it's 8 million occupants reside. While Manhattan is the most dense borough overall,
Corona, Queens actually has the most dense neighborhood,
with 216,000 residents per square mile.
