How many people live in New York? Updated map offers unpublished post-census details to face housing crisis
A new map of the five boroughs offers a look at NYC like never before, announced the mayor of the city.
“The 2022 edition of this map, which first published in 1994, it best represents the hills, valleys, and ridges that have inspired many neighborhood names throughout the city. The map also provides important statistical information, including key data from the 2020 Census.
The updated map, published yesterday by the Urban Planning Department (DCP) offers information on all corners of New York, summed up the director of the agency, Daniel R. Garodnick.
“It provides a single overview of all boroughs and neighborhoods in our community and establishes key demographic and topographic details,” Garodnick said in a statement. “It is a must for those who want a better understanding of New York City.”
In addition to neighborhoods and city limits 59 community boroughs of New York, the new edition presents greater topographic detail than previous versions. That includes the elevations and depressions that define certain parts of the city and, in some cases, gave rise to neighborhood names, such as Murray Hill or Washington Heights.
It also presents information and statistical data, such as the number of miles of street (more than 6,300), the number of languages spoken by residents (more than 200), and the total number of housing units (3,618,635, for a population of 8,804,190 people)stressed Pix11.
Such figures are not trivial, but essential to guide public policy and determine responses to problems such as current housing crisissaid the DCP.
