With evictions prominent in recent news due to Coronavirus, exploring previous patterns of evictions, especially locating hotspots is worthwhile to provide context for the eviction moratoriums and which communities will likely need the most help going forward. Analyzing NYC eviction data with census data, neighborhood eviction rates can be more informative and potential arguments (income, race, ownership) can be addressed. The following visualizations will show three types of census tracts that have particularly high levels of evictions per capita: homeless populations congregating in parks, certain trendy high end neighborhoods and certain poor minority neighborhoods particularly in the Bronx and Brooklyn.
