Web researcher and artist Nickolay Lamm built a 3D map of Manhattan that visualizes the island's income inequality with building height. Lamm used demographic data taken from the 2010 census and made available on the Esri website to show how the wealthy neighborhoods surrounding Central Park tower over low-lying neighborhoods such as Harlem. "Everybody knows that some areas are more well-off than others, but this just puts it in a more clear way than anything else I've ever seen," Lamm said of his project.
