Supermarket Isolation
Supermarket Isolation

The Bronx is unfortunately not known as NYC's healthiest borough. A lack of access to supermarkets, both by foot and by public transit, is a large part of this problem.

Elderly/Disabled Public Transit Use
Elderly/Disabled Public Transit Use

This map is a geostatistical analysis of clusters of bus riders weighted against the combined elderly and disabled populations of census blocks. This map was designed to illustrate the concentration of elderly and disabled residents in Co-Op City, hopefully encouraging the MTA to invest in more low-floor buses for Eastchester Depot.

Bad Urban Planning in the Bronx
Bad Urban Planning in the Bronx

Asthma and poverty are far too common in the Bronx. I subscribe to the theory that most of these problems come from bad urban planning choices made decades ago. Highways such as the Cross Bronx Expressway, in addition to rapid industrialization and restriction to waterfronts and open space, seem to have decided the fate of many Bronxites.

MAPPING WESTCHESTER COUNTY
 

Although I'm a native Bronxite, much of my time has been spent in Westchester County. My final project of my graduate career will focus on optimizing the Bee-Line bus system to better serve retail and entertainment workers in the southern portion of the county.
