The New Little Italy on Google Maps
WNYC has set out to answer the question of where is the new 'Little Italy' in New York? Using the latest Census Tract Ancestry Data WNYC has created a Google Map that shows you which neighborhoods in New York are populated by at least 20% of any ancestry or ethnicity.
The New Littles allows users to select different nationalities from a drop-down menu and visualise where in New York there is a more than a 20% concentration of ancestors from that country. It is therefore possible to use the map to find out where the new Little Poland, Little Korea, Little China and the New Italy are.
