Check Out Where Foreign-Born Bostonians Come From

The Boston Redevelopment Authority has contributed this map to the upcoming updated Dreams of Freedom exhibit in the Prudential Skywalk: "The exhibit, which tells Boston's immigrant story, will feature new interactive displays, maps, a theater, and a virtual helicopter tour, all from the 50th floor of the Prudential Tower. BRA staff produced a map of the top 10 countries of birth among the foreign-born population for each of Boston's neighborhoods using infographics."

The font sizes of the country names correspond to the proportion of residents from those countries in each neighborhood. Who knew Germany in Southie? Or China in Brighton? Check out more about the updated exhibit, which opens in the fall, through here.
