Building Age Map

Return to your building age map and open the properties for the "Year Built" layer. Click the symbology tab and click the classify window.

Clicking on each Break Value will tell you how many buildings were built in each time period.

1) List the time periods on your map and how many buildings were built in each.

2) Is there a trend in building ages in Bushwick? When were the greatest number of buildings built, when were the least?

3) What does this trend tell you about the pace of change in Bushwick? What is going on now in Bushwick now?

4) Look at all the new buildings in Bushwick. What do you think was there before it was built?

Bonus Question: Use the selection tool (select by attributes) to figure out how many buildings were built in 2006 and 2007.

1.) Before 1917 - 3760 buildings
1918-1935 - 4169 buildings
1936-1953 - 124 buildings
1954-1976 - 69 buildings
1977-1997 - 449 buildings
1998-2007 - 477 buildings.
2.) the most buildings were older and there wasn't as much younger buildings but there were more buildings between 1977-2007 than there were in 1936-1976.
3.) The trend tells me that there was a large amount of buildings going up about 100 years ago, but then building production slowed down a lot and now it seems to be rising again.
4.) I think these buildings were built in place of other buildings that became less needed.

1) The time period for the buildings were:
before 1901-1149 houses were built
1921-3086 houses were built
1971-3561 houses were built
1986-54 houses were built
1996-372 houses were built
2004-493 houses were built
2) The greatest number of buildings were built in 1971 and the least number of buildings were built in the 21st century.
3) This tells me that Bushwick is not moving at such a fast pace like before. Today in Buskwick there are still some buildings that built in the 1800s left.This tells mer that we are preserving our history.
4) I think that Bushwick was like a big forest, them immigrants came so they built buildings and made it there home.I don't think that Bushwick has changed,maybe some buildings just got a bit more modernized.

1) Before 1917 : 1310 buildings
1913 - 1925 : 1438 buildings
1926 - 1937 : 3061 buildings
1938 - 1952 : 122 buildings
1953 - 1976 : 68 buildings
1977 - 1995 : 327 buildings
1996 - 2004 : 581 buildings

2) there isn't a trend. the greatest number of buildings built was in 1926 - 1937 and the least number of buildings built was in 1953 - 1976.

3) it increased at some point then decreased.
