As most New Yorkers know, there’s nothing like a “hot subway car” in the summer to ruin what would otherwise be a perfect summer day.

That’s why The New York World and WNYC teamed up to do a data-driven investigation of “hot cars”.

Shortly after the piece came out, BetaNYC reached out to Harry Stevens, to see if they were willing to share the data with the community. Without any hesitation, The New York World shared the curated data - which they painstakingly extracted and analyzed from the FOILed PDFs.

Looking forward to what the community does with the data! cc @ben_wellington @cwhong @h2oboxer @talos @richarddunks
