Map 1: A map of Manhattan showing the tweets in a dot that contains #Halloween hashtags on 10/30/2015 and 10/31/2015. The dataset was collected using a Twitter API, using Tweepy package in Python. As expected, the dots are disproportionately populated in the downtown - midtown area.

Map 4: The below is a choropleth of Manhattan, showing the places I've been to. It can be seen that I've visited the most number of place in Midtown, Chelsea, and West Villeage, as well as places around Columbia, such as Morningside Heights, Upper West, and Central Harlem South. The Upper East Side, Lower East Side and Battery Parks are relatively my uncharted territories, which give me a good sense of where I should spend my time exploring.
