It Looks Pretty ‘Asian’

Queens-Politics received an email from the Astoria GOP regarding our post of the map with regards to the newly created ‘Asian’ Majority District.

The kind reader answered our call to draw the district onto the map – and just like the email says – after completing the map overlay, “It looks pretty Asian,” particularly on the western edge of SD16 with a high concentration of green dots.

You decide.

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

* Thanks to Sean Collins for the link.
