Where Are New York City’s Republicans? Right Here!

Also, our helpfully annotated map

New York may be a tried-and-true blue state, and New York City may be viewed by some less as our country’s great melting pot and more as the American Liberal-Pinko Gomorrah, but that doesn’t mean we don’t have our fair share of Republicans (nor does it mean we can’t color them pink).

Enter ever-wonderful New York City public radio staple and oddly popular tote-bag emblem WYNC. Using data gathered from the Department of City Planning consisting of voter rolls and district lines as of April 2011, the site’s John Keefe recently threw together a Google Map listing our city’s Republicans by district. WYNC’s Colby Hamilton explained:

President Barack Obama is leading Mitt Romney by more than 30 points in New York state. But fueled by the Tea Party-inspired energy of motivated activists, Republicans are winning local office.

The map can be viewed here. Users can go borough to borough or neighborhood to neighborhood.

It’s a fun exercise for the politically curious, as well as a way to reinforce your beliefs and umbrella generalizations about who lives where.
