Metro Region Explorer

NYC Metro Region Explorer is a new online tool that enables New Yorkers to understand socioeconomic trends across the metropolitan region.

NYC’s Redesigned Zoning & Land Use Map

    NYC's Zoning and Land Use map, ZoLa, has been redesigned from the ground up. It's now easier to research zoning regulations, find your property's zoning, and discover neighborhood proposals and City Planning initiatives. Built entirely on open data, the new ZoLa is 100% open source, works on any device, and allows you to save and share your research.
Greater East Midtown


    The rezoning enables the development of new, sustainable, state-of-the-art office buildings, solidifying East Midtown as a premier business district. Buildings will be able to achieve higher densities provided that the developments support enhancements to the area’s transit network and pedestrian realm, and support the preservation of some of Midtown’s most iconic landmarks.
