More fun with Madoff maps
More interactive fun from the 13,000+ Madoff client list to indulge your schadenfreude. MapLarge.com has launched the Madoff Victim Map, an interactive heat map that shows the locations and density of Madoff clients.
Client locations are mapped with an icon showing the density of nearby Madoff clients (within 10 miles). The density of the clients is reflected in colors that range from from green (less density) to red (intense density). A look at the overall map of the United States shows the greatest density of Madoff clients is in Florida, New York and California (Los Angeles and the Bay Area).
The L.A. map, as would be expected, finds a heavy orange concentration in the affluent but geographically dense areas of Beverly Hills and Brentwood/Santa Monica. An orange cluster worth noting is the one rooted in the Encino and Sherman Oaks hills of the San Fernando Valley.
The map is also searchable by client name. You can enter keywords like “Jewish,” “Israel” and “trust,” which will give you a list of clients that meet your search request.
