A NYC Map Plots Racial Makeup: Casts Doubt On ‘Asian Majority’ District

An interesting map by Eric Fischer highlights the racial and ethnic makeup of New York City based on the 2010 census. For comparative purposes it is illuminating to match it with the recently created “Asian Majority’ Senate District. We aren’t cartographers, but if this map is completely accurate it casts more doubt on how “Asian” the district really is.

Map Key: Red is White, Blue is Black, Green is Asian, Orange is Hispanic, Yellow is Other, and each dot is 25 residents.

If anyone can draw the LATFOR map onto this ethnic map, please email us at info@queens-politics.com
