The Publicly Accessible Waterfront data components are provided as a free download. These components complement each other and may be used together.  However, to provide the most flexible access to the data each component may be downloaded separately. The two shapefiles were used to create the City Waterfront Interactive Maps.

  • NYC Waterfront Parks Shapefile: This is a polygon shapefile of parklands on the water's edge in New York City. Any portions of a park that are located upland (separated from water by the first upland street) are excluded. This shapefile complements the PAWS shapefile for mapping all open spaces on the water's edge in New York City. Most of the parks in this file are included in the New York City Department of City Planning's Selected Facilities and Program Sites database and are under the jurisdiction of NYC Department of Parks and Recreation, NYS Office of Parks, Recreation & Historic Preservation, or the National Park Service.  

  • PAWS Shapefile: This is a polygon shapefile of publicly accessible waterfront spaces in NYC containing jurisdictional and construction status information. The majority of these spaces were constructed in conjunction with private waterfront developments, pursuant to the NYC Zoning Resolution.  This shapefile also includes spaces that are under construction (in progress), or have been approved through ULURP (Uniform Land Use Review Procedure) but construction of the waterfront spaces has not commenced.  The publicly owned spaces in this shapefile do not include parks or open spaces under the jurisdiction of NYC Department of Parks and Recreation, NYS Office of Parks, Recreation & Historic Preservation, or the National Park Service.

  • Publicly Accessible Waterfront Spaces (PAWS) Database: This Access database contains information about publicly accessible waterfront spaces in NYC.  The database can be joined to the PAWS shapefile on the PAWS_ID field. The database includes many additional attribute fields and provides more detailed information on each publicly accessible waterfront space that is not under the jurisdiction of NYC Department of Parks and Recreation, NYS Office of Parks, Recreation & Historic Preservation, or the National Park Service.
