The New York City Department of Planning released a web product called Facilities Explorer this weekend, an interactive map of all city-owned properties in the five boroughs.
“The NYC Facilities Explorer is designed to make this expansive database more accessible to planners and city-builders across the five boroughs, and to help all New Yorkers understand the breadth of government resources in their neighborhoods,” according to the project’s site.
The entire project is made with open data and open source technology.
