NYC and Taxis - a #Visualization

 Todd Schneider analyzed a crapload (ok, 1.1 Billion) taxi rides in NYC, and the results are here.  There is a lot (!!!) to digest, but one of the parts I particularly liked were these

Notice how the pickups are concentrated in Manhattan (and the airports), while the dropoffs extend out, way out.  Nice asymmetry :-)

There is more, a lot more, including

  • The rise of Uber
  • Don't go to an airport at 5pm (well, d'uh)
  • Bruce Willis and Samuel L. Jackson would have made their trip 39% of the time
