GIS data: Community Districts (Water areas included)
Community Districts are mandated by the city charter to review and monitor quality of life issues for New York City (NYC) neighborhoods. NYC is currently comprised of 59 community districts. The first byte is a borough code and the second and third bytes are the community district number. There are also 12 Joint Interest Areas (JIAs). The JIAs are major parks and airports and are not contained within any community district. This dataset is being provided by the Department of City Planning (DCP) for informational purposes only.

GIS data: A waterfront access plan (WAP) is a specific plan, set forth in the Zoning Resolution that tailors waterfront bulk regulations and public access requirements to the specific conditions of a particular waterfront area.
This is a polygon shapefile of publicly accessible waterfront spaces in NYC containing jurisdictional and construction status information. The majority of these spaces were constructed in conjunction with private waterfront developments, pursuant to the NYC Zoning Resolution. This feature class also includes spaces that are under construction (in progress), or have been approved through ULURP (Uniform Land Use Review Procedure) but construction of the waterfront spaces has not commenced. The publicly owned spaces in this database do not include parks or open spaces under the jurisdiction of NYC Department of Parks and Recreation, NYS Office of Parks, Recreation & Historic Preservation, or the National Park Service. This shapefile was used to create the City Waterfront Interactive Maps at http://www.nyc.gov/html/dcp/html/cwp/cw.shtml .
