Mapping segregation in New York and other cities

Race and ethnicity: New York City
An interesting map of segregation by race in New York City, by Eric Fischer. Red is for Whites, Blue is for Blacks, Green is for Asians, Orange is for Hispanics, Gray is for Others. Each dot is 25 people. Fischer has mapped the largest 40 cities in the US (see here).

Hard to know exactly what to make of this: it's not entirely surprising. Compared to other US cities, the density of New York stands out. But the extent of segregation does not seem more or less than others.
