BKLYNR: Mapping the Age of each Building in Brooklyn - BKLYNR [bklynr.com] by web designer Thomas Rhiel is a highly detailed map that reveals the age of each of the more than 320,000 buildings currently present in Brooklyn. The interactive map reveals how the historical urban development has rippled across certain neighborhoods (darker color), while leaving some pockets unchanged for decades (yellow color), even centuries.

In this age of impending climate change, encouraging the thermal insulation of buildings has become an important factor in reducing energy costs and minimizing carbon emissions. Out of most existing buildings, a significant amount of heat escapes unnecessarily, and at least 30% is typically emitted through the roof construction. Many governments throughout the world attempt to tackle this problem by supporting the insulation of roofs through rebates, tax credits and other financial…
