Coolest interactive map ever!

The Times has a new feature taking the past five years of Census data to break down the entire country on matters of race, education, income, and housing.  This link is for the high proportion of highly educated persons in my vicinity (I’m in tract 5351, for what it’s worth).  If I didn’t have other things to do, I swear I could play around with the maps all day.  I found the race and ethnicity maps especially fascinating.  In the case of Raleigh, it’s amazing how neighborhoods change from overwhelmingly white to overwhelmingly Black with virtually no transition in between.  Anyway, definitely check this out.  You can put in your own address and check out all the different data for your area.
