BRA Contributes Map to Prudential Skywalk Exhibit on Immigration

May 30, 2014

Staff from the Boston Redevelopment Authority's Office of Digital Cartography and GIS and Research Division recently assisted with updating the Prudential Skywalk's Dreams of Freedom exhibit.

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 (seen below). The map will be an important piece of telling the immigrant story in Boston today.

The updated Dreams of Freedom exhibit opens in the fall. More information is available at the Top of the Hub website.
