Link to this Map

Now users can click the link icon to generate a reusable link to the customized NYCityMap view they are currently seeing. The link will maintain your search history, basemap tile cache (aerial or map), zoom level, city location, and any additional data you may have turned on.

Find Nearest within a Distance

Added the ability to find the nearest locations to a searched point by distance. Previously this was only possible by total number of locations. Users can choose between distances by miles, feet, yards, kilometers, and meters.

DOT Parking Regulations

Added link from Neighborhood Information to the DOT Parking Regulations page.

Landmark Status

We’ve added landmark status to the information provided in the Building & Property Information. Buildings which are designated landmarks or fall into an historic district are now indicated with a “yes”. Buildings which fall into historic districts provide the district name.
