Map Love Wednesday

This map is complimented by this article:Languages mapped: what do people speak where you live?
The scrolldown bar on top of the first map lets you look at the percentage of native speakers in each district. I’ve never seen a map like this for other cities, and I would be really interested to see a similar map for Minneapolis (my home town), especially over a thirty-years span (with successive waves of immigration, and thus patterns of immigrant re-settling within the city and suburbs).

This linguist map is also not bad, if a bit broader:
