Midtown Hearts.

city map

Frumin created a graph that was able to show the popularity hikes of New Yorks 5 bouroughs, through mapping the traffic of each individual train stop. 

This experiment inspired Sha Whang (the Nerdy Architect) to create a demographical map of his own. The fluctuation of girth within each colored subway line indicates the traffic increase and decrease within the route. He followed the NY subway systems popularity between 1977 and 2006, to find he Midtown acts as the ‘throbbing heart of Manhattan’.
