Learning about NYC: Buildings

NYC Open Data Updates - Winter 2018

You likely live, work, eat and shop in these: New York City buildings. The New York City skyline is famous thanks to its buildings. How many buildings are there in New York City? Which City Agencies work with our City’s buildings? How do we know which ones are part of the Mayor’s housing plan? How do we know which buildings are under construction?

Come learn the answer to these questions and others at a first-of-its-kind event at Civic Hall, a community space for civic technologists.

This event is brought to you by the NYC Open Data TeamEsriCivic Hall and key City Agency partners: the Department of Buildings (DOB) and the Department of Housing Preservation & Development (HPD).

Explore free & public city data here:

NOTE: While the Department of Housing Preservation & Development (HPD) is also responsible for Housing Maintenance Code enforcement, the winter season is the department’s busiest season and HPD will not have representatives from enforcement present to answer questions. HPD’s engagement in this event will focus on data for their affordable housing programs (the Housing New York dataset).
