The Department of City Planning aggregates information about 35,000+ 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 into a central database called the City Planning Facilities Database (FacDB). These facilities generally help to shape quality of life in the city’s neighborhoods, and this dataset is the basis for a series of planning activities. This public data resource allows all New Yorkers to understand the breadth of government resources in their neighborhoods.
This dataset is now complemented with the Facilities Explorer, a new interactive web map that makes the data more accessible and allows users to quickly filter the data for their needs.
Note to Users: FacDB is only as good as the source data it aggregates, and the Department of City Planning cannot verify the accuracy of all records. Please read more about specific data and analysis limitations before using this data. Limitations include missing records, duplicate records, and the inclusion of administrative sites instead of service locations.
Questions about this database can be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The following supplemental file package contains two additional tables: 1) all records that could not be geocoded or are outside NYC, and 2) all original records from source datasets before overlapping duplicate records were merged into a single record. A summary of how the data was processed is available in the Methodology.
