New York Day/Night

Another interesting map, this time showing the difference in population from daytime to nightime - showing the major exodus that happens when the workday is finished. Via People and Place > The Pop-Up City > The Urbanophile " interesting graphic that gives insight in the huge differences between New York’s day and night population density (click here for a larger image). The designer has calculated both the number of people per block during daytime and nighttime. As you can see Manhattan has far more jobs than inhabitants, which suggests a huge daily stream of people, with an average commute of 34 minutes.”
