Social New York City on Foursquare

London-based urbanist Anil Bawa-Cavia does some amazing mapping on Urbagram including, earlier this summer, a map project titled Archipelago and plotting the social hubs in New York, Paris and London based on Foursquare traffic. The above map, one of several Bawa-Cavia created for the project, shows neighborhoods that act as social hubs with a wealth of venues where users check in frequently (larger version here). Surprise: Prospect Heights now officially hotter than the Bedford stop on the L train! (TheDailyWhat)
