Above is the rather extraordinary heatmap that began with Jeff Kaufman, a Google programmer out of the firm's Kendall Square offices, who devised a color scheme to correspond with the average rents per bedroom in Greater Boston. The redder the map, the more expensive; the bluer, the less expensive. (The scheme gels nicely, too, with our recent report on the cheapest and priciest areas to rent an apartment.) A Reddit user later helpfully overlaid the T lines on Kaufman's map. Want a deal? Blue Line, people, Blue Line. The Red Line will put you in the red. Morning.
