On November 16, 2022, the Department of City Planning released the 2022 edition of “New York City: A City of Neighborhoods” map. The map provides key demographic and topographical details about the city, and outlines community districts and the neighborhoods that are included within those districts. The map was first published in 1994.

The map includes statistical data from the latest 2020 census and American Community Survey. Some of the info includes the percentage of foreign-born New Yorkers at 36.2 percent, and that over 200 languages are spoken in the city. The data also includes total housing units, public school enrollment, and miles of streets and shoreline in the city. 

Further demographic data can be found at DCP’s Population FactFinder site, where users can define areas they want demographics for, and see demographic and socioeconomic information for that area, neighborhood, borough, or even citywide. 

The map is available for download here and purchase here. Printed versions also include a QR code that links to the digital version on the City Planning website. 

DCP Director Dan Garodnick stated, “If you love New York City, you’re going to love our City of Neighborhoods map. It provides a unique overview of all of our community districts and neighborhoods and sets out key demographic and topographical details. It’s a must-have for those who want a better understanding of New York City.”

  1. DCP Director Dan Garodnick is proven to be another lame commissioner and friend of Mr. Shiney Shoes Mayor Adams. This highly acclaimed map release tells us absolutely nothing about all the communities across the City of New York. Other than ooooh, look at the nice colors.

    DCP Comm Garodnick please go back and do your homework and deliver something more informative.
