Did you know that May is Asian heritage month? Well, you do now. To celebrate, take a look at this great set of demographics collected by the Gotham Gazette. Some facts: Chinese, Indians, and Koreans are the leading Asian groups in the Tri-State area. Filipinos, Taiwanese, and Sri Lankens make the highest wages. Filipinos, Indians, Pakistanis, and Sri Lankens speak the best English (some credit for that should probably be given to oppressive policies of British colonialism.) [Via NYC Metblogs.]
