Our mission: open data for all
Open Data is an opportunity to engage New Yorkers in the information that is produced and used by City government. We believe that every New Yorker can benefit from Open Data, and Open Data can benefit from every New Yorker.
Who we are
NYC Open Data is managed by the Open Data Team at the NYC Office of Technology and Innovation (OTI). The team works with City agencies to identify and make data available, coordinate platform operations and improvements, and promote the use of Open Data both within government and throughout NYC. Each City agency also has an Open Data Coordinator, who serves as the main point of contact for the Open Data team and the public, and works to identify, document, structure, and manage the agency’s public datasets.
We want to especially thank all of our partners in the civic tech community for your ongoing support — we could not do this without you.

State and Federal Open Data efforts
NYC Open Data contains information that is collected and maintained by the City government. Both New York State and the federal government also maintain data related to New York City that may not appear on NYC Open Data. Users can browse data.ny.gov to download data from New York State on topics from farmers’ markets to MTA turnstile usage. Federal datasets, such as census information and data from the College Scorecard, can be found on data.gov.
The City is not liable for any deficiencies in the completeness, accuracy, content, or fitness for any particular purpose or use of any public data set, or application utilizing such data set, provided by any third party.
Submitting City Agencies are the authoritative source of data available on NYC Open Data. These entities are responsible for data quality and retain version control of data sets and feeds accessed on the Site. Data may be updated, corrected, or refreshed at any time.
