NYC post office location data for all five boroughs.

Contents

The data is provided in two formats:

  • GeoJSON: data/geojson/nyc-post-offices.geojson
  • Shapefile: data/shp/nyc-post-offices.shp

Methodology

  1. The Post Office dataset from NYC OpenData was joined with MapPLUTO for each borough by BBL.
  2. We added a new field, public, which is yes when the owner is public and NULL otherwise.
  3. We added a new field, OwnerFixed, which attempts to provide a more consistent owner name for each feature. Abbreviations were expanded, capitalization was fixed. This was only done for post offices on property that is publicly owned.
