LANDSCAPES OF PROFIT :: Interactive
An interactive map / data-viz of all properties that were bought and sold within a two year period in New York City from 2003-01-01 to 2015-05-19. This data was derived from an analysis of NYC's property transaction database, ACRIS, using Docker For Data. The interactive calculates the total profit and a proposed "1% Flip Tax" for a given geographic area in NYC*. You can learn more about the methodology and rationale here and view the working prototype here.
* Staten Island's property transactions are not included in ACRIS.
