Foreclosures Skyrocket in Queens and the Bronx
View Larger Map
This Google Map (by Malia Politzer and me) depicts the percentage increase between 2004 and 2008* in the number of foreclosed homes in the 12 neighborhoods of the Bronx (total 113% increase) and the 14 neighborhoods of Queens (total 225% increase).
The four colors represent the following ranges in foreclosure increase: blue (0% - 99%), green (100% - 199%), yellow (200% - 299%), and red (300% - 399%).
Foreclosure data is courtesy of the Furman Center for Real Estate and Urban Policy.
*The figures for 2008 are projected by doubling the sum of the figures for the first two quarters.
