Presenting the Most and Least Compatible New York City Neighborhoods

Thumbnail image for okcupid-heat-map-2-2010.jpg
A "heat map" for NYC, from OkCupid last Valentine's Day.
According to data released to us by OkCupid, some New York City neighborhoods are more likely to make connections on the dating site than others. This may seem intuitive in some ways, but it's better to know these things for sure, right? After all, just like that map that tells us where the single men and women live, we can use this for our own purposes, whatever they may be. The numbers below reflect "the average compatibility between people in each neighborhood with other neighborhoods." The NUMBER 1 top compatibility is between...drumroll please...Greenpoint and Bed-Stuy, featuring a 46.09 compatibility return!

Also in the "pretty damn compatible" range is Greenpoint, with, like, virtually anyone, but especially Prospect Heights, Clinton Hill, Astoria, Flatbush, Bushwick, Park Slope, Prospect Lefferts Gardens, Greenwood Heights, Hamilton Heights, Central Park (Central Park!?), Red Hook, East Williamsburg, Ditmars, Washington Heights, Kensington...

The compatibility run of Greenpoint daters with everyone else is only briefly interrupted by a 41.57 compatibility score between Bed-Stuy and Prospect Heights, then Greenpoint goes on to pair with people in Long Island City, Central Harlem, Downtown Brooklyn, the West Village, and so on. Astoria gets in the action with Prospect Heights and Bed-Stuy, as well.

Wow, people in Greenpoint are compatible with people in Long Island City and Clinton Hill?  Shocking information.

What can Greenpoint say?  Hipsters like Hipsters and Greenpoint is now full of them.

Poor Turtle Bay. Well, I've never been much of a Midtown (especially Murray Hill) fan. I'm an East Village girl with a Bay Ridge guy. Wonder how that matches up? Looks like he needs to move to Greenpoint asap ;)

you guys are off the charts! Of course, this is OkCupid data, which leaves room for other meetings and compatibilities.
