NYC Parcel Data Now Freely Available

While New York City decided to open its data, with all dataset to be available for download by 2018. While many datasets are already available, one dataset was missing: parcels. Yesterday, that changed as the Department of City Planning made MapPLUTO avilable for free.

Until yesterday, City Planning argued the data need not be shared as it was a fusion of data from many departments. In fact, until now parcel data was available at $300 per borough. But the open data folks won the day, as is becoming more common all the time!
