The Languages of New York
Languages of NYC is a fascinating map showing the most frequently spoken languages at home in New York City at census tract level.
English and Spanish are the most frequently spoken languages in most of New York's homes. However Languages of NYC includes the option to exclude English or English & Spanish speakers from the map, which allows you to see what other languages are most frequently spoken in New York neighborhoods.
The map also allows you to view the distribution of individual languages on the map. Using the check boxes in the map side panel you can select to view the census tracts where any language, or combination of languages, is most frequently spoken. It is also possible to hover over individual census tracts on the map to see the most frequently spoken language (excluding English & Spanish).
