Who We Are: Visualizing New York by the Numbers
In coordination with the upcoming 2020 Census, the Museum of the City of New York presents this exhibition that looks at New York City through statistics and numbers. The showcase highlights the importance of data as a tool to better understand the City and its residents, particularly how the population count affects political representation, education funding, social programming, infrastructure and other hot-button issues.
