The NYC311 Rodent Complaints data was used to develop an interactive map representing locations across the NYC area where rodent related issues are chronically reported.
An investigation was also conducted on how the surrounding area looks like in terms of urban use in locations where rodent related complaints are the highest.
Additionally, the distance between a Rat sighting and a nearby NYC Urban Features (residential buildings, food-related businesses, Subway) was calculated. This proximity analysis allows a better understanding of the brown rat territory preferences in NYC.
Cuisine Diversity (food type), Restaurant Density and Food Safety
This study focuses on gathering intelligence about restaurant characteristics around Manhattan’s subway stations. It is also a proximity or distance analysis because it only considers restaurants within a 330 feet range (~1 ½ city block).
Through geospatial analytics some questions can be addressed:
If a subway could be described by one cuisine or food type, what would it be? *
Which subway station(s) has more cuisine options?
How safe is Food around subway stations? **
Where's the highest concentration of restaurants in Manhattan?>see the Manhattan’s Restaurant Density Map

NYC Filming Locations
New York has provided some of the most iconic moments on film. This map is based on the filming locations included in the book "Scenes from the City" by James Sanders covering 233 locations from 1945 to 2006.
Although incomplete, this interactive map is a relevant repertoire of street locations chosen by many directors across decades.
It's also interesting to see how some locations change through time, comparing the then and now.
