NYC Income Judged by Subway Line

In New York City your local subway line says a lot about you. Well, about your financial worth. For example, if you live off the Chambers Street or World Trade Center stops, your median income is the highest in the city—just above $205,000. The New Yorker has put together a handy interactive graphic showing income inequality by subway stop through the boroughs. Unsurprisingly, the highest income stops are in Manhattan, and the income drops off as the lines go deeper into other boroughs.
