Most people don't know what it's like to actually stare income equality in the face, so the New Yorker went ahead and broke it down—by New York City subway stops. Now you can visualize the gaping disparity between median income and city's subway stations, even though it's no secret.

Looking at the image above, you'll see the 2 train, where the median income rockets to over $200,000 in Manhattan, then bottoms out at under $14,000 in the Bronx. If you still aren't appalled, think of it like this: there's a train that transports passengers with a six figure difference in median income. 

Let that one sink in.
