How many citizens from Big Apple are receiving public assistance?

How many citizens in the city of New York are receiving public assistance? How are the poor people distributed geographically in the Big Apple well known around the world for its glittering wealth?

I found a relevant dataset from data.gov and imported it into Google Maps. Below is what I see. Different colors of place markers indicate different numbers of people depending on government subsidies. Can you improve this map?
