In Print: Benjamin Button is tops in G'wood

The New York Times has a fascinating map feature on its website.

The interactive feature allows users to search the top Netflix rentals in every zip code in Northern New Jersey and other areas in the country.

The breakdown of rentals makes for some interesting discussion about the viewing habits of different age groups, income groups, races, and a slew of other demographic breakdowns.

Garwood's love for The Curious Case of Benjamin Button is mirrored in most towns in America.

Garwood's Top 10 Netflix Rentals:

1. The Curious Case of Benjamin Button
2. Doubt
3. Twilight
4. Slumdog Millionaire
5. The Wrestler
6. Gran Torino
7. Changeling
8. Milk
9. Body of Lies
10. I Love You Man

Garwood also differs with its nearby neighbors Westfield and Cranford. While the movie Twilight was in Garwood's top 3 rentals, it didn't even show up at all in the top 10 of Westfield of Cranford. Westfield is unique for having Rachel Getting Married in its top 10 as well as Frost Nixon and Vicky Cristina Barcelona. Burn After Reading and Body of Lies are unique to Cranford's top picks.
