Dorothy Gambrell defines a bohemian as “someone who believes they cannot be defined by their job,” who devotes their life to something other than the accumulation of wealth and possessions. Gambrell defines this roughly as an inverse relationship between education and money. By this reasoning, a bohemian is someone who is well educated but does not earn much money. Taking this approach and U. S. Census, Gambrell has mapped the results for New York City in a number of maps that are anything but bohemian. Take a look at her results here and the accompanying article in The Morning News. It would be interesting to hear if someone has acutally done some ground-truthing of the results.
