A Civil Service List consists of all candidates who passed an exam, ranked in score order. An established list is considered active for no less than one year and no more than four years from the date of establishment. For more information visit DCAS’ “Work for the City” webpage at: http://www.nyc.gov/html/dcas/html/work/work.shtml
NYCDOT's Traffic Management Center (TMC) maintains a map of traffic speed detectors throughout the City. The speed detector themselves belong to various city and state agencies. The Traffic Speeds Map is available on the DOT's website (http://nyctmc.org/ ). This data feed contains 'real-time' traffic information from locations where NYCDOT picks up sensor feeds within the five boroughs, mostly on major arterials and highways. NYCDOT uses this information for emergency response and management.
This data set features businesses/individuals holding a DCA license so that they may legally operate in New York City. Note: Sightseeing guides and temporary street fair vendors are not included in this data set.
Street tree data from the TreesCount! 2015 Street Tree Census, conducted by volunteers and staff organized by NYC Parks & Recreation and partner organizations. Tree data collected includes tree species, diameter and perception of health. Accompanying blockface data is available indicating status of data collection and data release citywide.
The dataset contains every sustained or not yet adjudicated violation citation from every full or special program inspection conducted up to three years prior to the most recent inspection for restaurants and college cafeterias in an active status on the RECORD DATE (date of the data pull). When an inspection results in more than one violation, values for associated fields are repeated for each additional violation record. Establishments are uniquely identified by their CAMIS (record ID) number. Keep in mind that thousands of restaurants start business and go out of business every year; only restaurants in an active status are included in the dataset.
Records are also included for each restaurant that has applied for a permit but has not yet been inspected and for inspections resulting in no violations. Establishments with inspection date of 1/1/1900 are new establishments that have not yet received an inspection. Restaurants that received no violations are represented by a single row and coded as having no violations using the ACTION field.
Because this dataset is compiled from several large administrative data systems, it contains some illogical values that could be a result of data entry or transfer errors. Data may also be missing.
This dataset and the information on the Health Department’s Restaurant Grading website come from the same data source. The Health Department’s Restaurant Grading website is here:
http://www1.nyc.gov/site/doh/services/restaurant-grades.page See the data dictionary file in the Attachments section of the OpenData website for a summary of data fields and allowable values.
This dataset is updated on the third week of each month.

The following companies have been issued trade waste removal licenses by the Business Integrity Commission and, therefore, are authorized to collect and remove all types of trade waste covered by Local Law 42 of 1996.
"This data is collected on the entities that apply with the commission to operate as Licensees.
Each record represents an entity that is approved to operate in the City of New York by the Commission.
The Application Type field denotes the class of application 'License' noting the type of applicant which is a Licensee. They are able to pickup all trade waste from various businesses throughout the city.
The BIC Number field is unique to every company that applies to the Commission. "
Locations and types of refuse litter baskets tracked by DSNY
Data is collected by DSNY in order to track basket locations.
Data is collected through periodic surveys by field personnel. DSNY digitizes the locations of litter baskets using GIS software.
Each record represents the approximate location, ownership, and physical type of a single refuse litter basket.
The data can be used as an approximate assessment of the locations of litter baskets tracked by the Department of Sanitation in NYC.
"Litter basket locations are subject to frequent change, for reasons that include but are not limited to: litter basket damage, nearby construction, graffiti, or regular illegal use of basket for household or commercial waste. There is often a lag time between a change in basket type or location and the reflection of that change in this dataset.
This dataset includes information of BID-owned and Privately-owned litter baskets. Non-profit and private entities wishing to place a litter basket on a public street must receive permission from the Department of Sanitation. Location data for these baskets may be less accurate than for baskets that are owned by DSNY.
This dataset does not track public litter baskets placed by other City, State, or Federal agencies, notably including the NYC Department of Parks. Recycling baskets are also not tracked in this dataset."
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.

Popular Baby Names by Sex and Ethnic Group
Data were collected through civil birth registration. Each record represents the ranking of a baby name in the order of frequency. Data can be used to represent the popularity of a name. Caution should be used when assessing the rank of a baby name if the frequency count is close to 10; the ranking may vary year to year.
For each Community District, its Recycling Diversion rate (percentage of total municipal solid waste collected by the Department of Sanitation that is disposed of by recycling) and Capture Rate (percentage of total Paper or Metal/Glass/Plastic in the waste stream that is disposed of by recycling). For more information about DSNY's recycling programs, see: https://www1.nyc.gov/assets/dsny/site/services/recycling. Capture rate is the amount of materials set out for residential recycling collection as a percentage of designated recyclable materials in both recycling and refuse streams. This ratio measures how much of the targeted materials are actually being recycled, which is a measure of how successfully such materials are recycled. Please note that since 2013, DSNY no longer uses capture rate information. For information on what is in NYC's waste, see: http://www1.nyc.gov/assets/dsny/site/resources/reports/waste-characterization.
