Cuisine Concentration in New York City

To cap off a recent series of posts on New York restaurants (see What’s the Safest Food in New York City? and Heatmap of Restaurants in New York City), I put together heatmaps of restaurant density by cuisine type.

Only one comment before we get started: I have no idea how the DOHMH categorizes restaurants. There are, for example, categories for Chinese, Japanese, Chinese/Japanese, and Asian. With that said, here we go:

American

Asian

Bakery

Caribbean

Chicken

Chinese

Deli

Hamburgers

Indian

Italian

Japanese

Jewish/Kosher

Korean

Latin

Mexican

Pizza

Spanish

Thai

Once again, some thanks are in order. Restaurant addresses and cuisines came from NYC OpenData’s Restaurant Inspection Results. Geocoding the raw addresses was done with Excel/VBA (don’t judge) and Yahoo! PlaceFinder. The heatmaps were generated with the Google Maps API and a JS heatmap library from Patrick Wied.

That’s it for restaurants. For the next few posts, I’m going to turn to a different data set altogether. Suggestions welcome.
