The Transportation Division of the New York City Department of City Planning (NYCDCP) has performed annual bike counts in Manhattan since 1999. The counts have been conducted along designated bicycle routes at 10 on-street and 5 off-street locations during the fall season. These locations have remained generally consistent. The data collected includes cyclist/user volumes, helmet usage, use of bike lane, gender, etc. The bike counts data can offer insights into the overall trends in user demographics and travel patterns over time.
The Georeferenced NYC Zoning Maps raster dataset is intended to be a spatial representation of the entire zoning map catalog for the City of New York as one seamless citywide raster zoning map sans title blocks. These maps are normally maintained as 126 individual quarter sections and printed periodically for inclusion in Vol III of the City’s Zoning Resolution. This dataset encompasses recent changes to mapped zoning districts or zoning text amendments as they are adopted by the City Council as well as filed City Map changes.
Shapefile of zoning section map index, grid to determine which zoning section map relates to specific areas of NYC.
A sectional index grid to determine which Zoning Map refers to specific areas of New York City. Zoning maps show the boundaries of zoning districts throughout the city. The maps are regularly updated after the City Planning Commission and the City Council have approved proposed zoning changes. The set of 126 maps, which are part of the Zoning Resolution, are displayed in 35 sections. Each section is identified by a number from 1 to 35. Each map covers an area of approximately 8,000 feet (north/south) by 12,500 feet (east/west).
Shapefile of zoning quartersection map index. Grid to determine which zoning quartersection map relates to specific areas of NYC.
A sectional index grid to determine which Zoning Map refers to specific areas of New York City. Zoning maps show the boundaries of zoning districts throughout the city. The maps are regularly updated after the City Planning Commission and the City Council have approved proposed zoning changes. The set of 126 maps, which are part of the Zoning Resolution, are displayed in 35 sections. Each section is identified by a number from 1 to 35 and is further divided into one to four quarters, each identified by a letter a, b, c or d (map 8d or 33c for example). Each map covers an area of approximately 8,000 feet (north/south) by 12,500 feet (east/west).
The City Planning Facilities Database (FacDB) aggregates information about 35,000+ public and private facilities and program sites that are owned, operated, funded, licensed or certified by a City, State, or Federal agency in the City of New York. It captures facilities that generally help to shape quality of life in the city’s neighborhoods, including schools, day cares, parks, libraries, public safety services, youth programs, community centers, health clinics, workforce development programs, transitional housing, and solid waste and transportation infrastructure sites. To facilitate analysis and mapping, the data is available in coma-separated values (CSV) file format, ESRI Shapefile, and GeoJSon. The data is also complemented with a new interactive web map that enables users to easily filter the data for their needs. Users are strongly encouraged to read the database documentation, particularly with regard to analytical limitations.
The Street Name Dictionary (SND) contains street names and street codes for New York City. Street names (which include names of other geographic features as well) are associated to street codes. Alias street names and variant spellings are related through a street code hierarchy.
The PAD (Property Address Directory) file contains additional geographic information at the tax lot level not found in the PLUTO files. This data includes alias addresses and Building Identification Numbers (BINs). It consists of two ASCII, comma delimited files: a tax lot file and an address file.
Note To Users: A new field (ZIP Code) has been added to the bobaadrx (Address) file. Please check your procedures to make sure this does not cause any problems. For earlier versions, see PAD releases on the BYTES of the BIG APPLE archive page.
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. DCP does not warranty the completeness, accuracy, content, or fitness for any particular purpose or use of the dataset, nor are any such warranties to be implied or inferred with respect to the dataset as furnished on the website.

Unadjusted decennial census data from 1950-2000 and projected figures from 2010-2040: summary table of New York City population numbers and percentage share by Borough, including school-age (5 to 17), 65 and Over, and total population.
Archived History of Primary Land Use Tax Lot Output (PLUTO).
The PLUTO tax lot data files contain over seventy data fields derived from extracts of mainframe data files maintained by the Department of City Planning (DCP), Department of Finance (DOF), Department of Citywide Administrative Services (DCAS), and from information contained in Landmarks Preservation Commission (LPC) publications and web site.
The Zoning Tax Lot Database is a comma–separated values (CSV) file format that contains up-to-date zoning by parcel. The Database includes the zoning designations and zoning map associated with a specific tax block and lot. The Database is updated on a monthly basis to reflect rezoning and corrections to the file.
Extensive land use and geographic data at the tax lot level in GIS format (ESRI Shapefile). Contains more than seventy fields derived from data maintained by city agencies, merged with tax lot features from the Department of Finance’s Digital Tax Map, clipped to the shoreline.
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 .
