New Yorkers now have a digital one-stop shop for navigating their neighborhood. The city launched neighborhood.nyc Wednesday with more than 400 specific domains for places like Bay Ridge, Astoria, the East Village and other areas in the five boroughs, that provide open data info in an easy-to-use webpage. Before, New Yorkers would have to visit the city's open data portal or an agency website and do some detective work to find information on items like 311 complaints or street closures in their community. With neighborhod.nyc, all of that public information is available on the home page with an interactive header and map.
