Presenting MyGov.NYC: Data-Driven Profiles for NYC Government Agencies facilitated by Devin Balkind & Kate Nicholson

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

The MyGov.nyc Research Center combines nearly a dozen NYC datasets to create (probably?) the most complete data-driven directory of city agency information ever. Check out a government agency, see all their communication channels, capital projects, social services, operations budget, mentions in the charter, code and city rules - and more!
