Mindblowing Data Visualization

Here is a population graph of Manhattan's population by day vs. its population by night. You almost get a feeling of vertigo, until you hear the subway statistics:

From 8:00AM to 8:59 AM on an average Fall day in 2007 the NYC Subway carried 388,802 passengers into the CBD [city business district] on 370 trains over 22 tracks. In other words, a train carrying 1,050 people crossed into the CBD every 6 seconds.

That is CRAZY. Such a busy city.
