Financial District-based nonprofit Citizens Housing and Planning Council has unveiled a map that breaks down demographic changes in every New York City neighborhood that occurred between 2000 and 2010, thus illuminating various population shifts spurred by housing trends.
The policy group found that the population of Hispanic, low-income families and single people climbed by 13 percent over 10 years. The overall black population in the city dropped by 5 percent, while the black middle class took a bigger hit, with an 18 percent drop.
Single households with a high income increasingly relocated to Downtown Brooklyn, Long Island City and other diverse outer-borough neighborhoods.
The map divided the population into 14 groups based on age, income and race.
