Have you ever wondered what’s trending in NYC for our sidewalk-hogging tourist friends? “Tags and the City” uses social media data to turn subway maps into an in-depth investigation if Instagram hotspots, renaming subway stations after nearby popular Instagram hashtags.
In our New York map, instead of taking the C train downtown to Spring Street, the station is renamed #cronut, after the popular treat nearby.
Up to now, the “Tags and the City” team has completed subway maps of New York, Berlin, London, Paris, and the San Fransisco Bay Area. Each of the city’s subway maps show the 100 most popular stations as well as their corresponding Instagram tags. Check them out HERE.
