Useful Summertime Map Shows the Closest Froyo Shop Anywhere in Manhattan

Data scientist and analyst Brian Weinstein recently used publicly accessible data from Google Places and PLUTO to create this interesting map showing density of all frozen yogurt places in Manhattan, allowing you to find your closest one easily during the hot summer months.

As someone who loves data and has too much time to spare, I decided to find the locations in Manhattan with highest and lowest froyo density. Inspired by Ben Wellington’s work on I Quant NY, I calculated the distance from every lot in Manhattan to the nearest froyo shop and mapped it out.

Check out the accompanying article for analysis.
