Today, the City announced the release of dozens of high-value data sets, an enhanced NYC Open Data portal at www.nyc.gov/data, and the citywide plan for unlocking all public data by 2018.

These developments mark the latest milestone in NYC Department of Information Technology and Telecommunications’s (DoITT) implementation of Local Law 11 of 2012, the landmark open data legislation signed by Mayor Bloomberg last year. The NYC Open Data Plan ensures New York City continues to release public data for generations to come, providing a detailed schedule of the data sets that City agencies will release to the public in compliance with the law.

Also, included in this release are new open data covering a wide range of topics, from property and construction to health and environmental data. 

Explore more than 200 new data sets available free of charge on the newly redesigned www.nyc.gov/data, bringing the total to over 1,100 data sets from over 60 city agencies open to the public.
