Not only does NYCityMap display a wealth of information on the map, but it also gives you easy access to a host of additional city websites that can provide you with information specific to your search location.
Any time you Search for a Location, whether it is an address, intersection, place of interest, or borough block and lot, you can choose to expand your search result by selecting “Show Additional Information…”
This will open your search result and give you access to 4 new panes of information: Find Nearest, Building & Property Information, Neighborhood Information, and Elected Official Information. (Note: Building & Property Information is not available for Intersection searches.)
Building & Property Information
The Building & Property Information pane provides information specific to the searched building. In the first section of these results you’ll find information about square footage, number of floors, number of units, year built, landmark status, and more. In the second section of these results you’ll find links to other websites that provide building specific information. For example, there are links to the School & Zone Finder, Poll Site Locator, DCP Zoning Map, Tax and Property Records, and more.
The Neighborhood Information pane also provides search location-based information, but focuses on websites that are at the community level rather than the building level. In the first section of these results you’ll find information about the community board of your searched location. In the second section of these results you’ll find links to other websites that provide community specific information. For example, there are links to Restaurant Inspection results for the ZIP code, My Neighborhood Statistics, NYC*scout MAP, Census Fact Finder, and more.
Elected Official Information
The Elected Official Information pane provides the Local, State, and Federal officials elected in the area of your search location.
