Join NYC Department of Transportation (NYC DOT), Manhattan Community Board 1, and BetaNYC in validating and adding bicycle parking points in Lower Manhattan!

This is a prototyping event! We will use two field mapping tools, FieldPapers and ArcGIS Survey123, to validate the location of NYC’s street furniture data. Ultimately, we want to validate NYC street furniture data on the open data portal. All data points updated by participants will be reflected in OpenStreetMap (OSM).


Together, we will work to identify a shared data literacy / civic engagement process that will validate NYC open data and contribute to OSM.


Join us to:

  • Learn about and try to find all the various bicycle parking in Manhattan Community Board 1.
  • Work in a small group to crowdsource information with digital or physical tools.
  • Contribute to open data validation and to OpenStreetMap!
  • Help us create a repeatable process for all of New York City.


This event will be in person, lunch and training will be provided.

Event will run from 1pm-5pm, rain or shine! Masks and comfortable shoes required!
