This is an animated dot map of every person in New York City. The blue-green dots represent males and pink dot represent females. The animation shows how clustering of people change with age. The population of babies starts out gender balanced and pretty evenly distributed across the city. Then things get interesting. In their twenties, women cluster on the Upper East Side and men head to jail. The early thirties show a reblending, and then men start to die off.
