2008-2010 three year estimates of Population data from the American Community Survey
The ACS is a continuous national survey that aims to provide data more than once a decade for all places in the nation. For New York City and its five boroughs, the ACS makes it possible to obtain an annual update of characteristics for each of 55 Census designated PUMA subareas, which approximate NYC Community Districts.

Flood Resilience Zoning Text Amendment
Following Hurricane Sandy, the City is taking a wide range of steps to promote recovery from the storm, rebuilding, and increasing the city’s resilience to climate-related events, including coastal flooding and storm surge. As part of this effort, the Department of City Planning is proposing a Flood Resilience Zoning Text Amendment to enable new and existing buildings throughout designated flood zones to meet the latest standards for flood-resistant construction. It also removes additional impediments to flood-resistant construction, and modifies regulations to mitigate potential negative effects of flood-resistant construction on the streetscape and public realm.
Waterfront Revitalization Program
The Department of City Planning is proposing a series of revisions to the Waterfront Revitalization Program (WRP) in order to proactively advance the long-term goals laid out in Vision 2020: The New York City Comprehensive Waterfront Plan, released in 2011. The WRP is the City’s primary coastal zone management tool, and the proposed revisions, currently undergoing public review, emphasize sustainability and climate resilience planning, promote a range of ecological objectives and strategies, facilitate interagency review of permitting to preserve and enhance maritime infrastructure, and support a thriving, sustainable working waterfront.
Vision 2020: The NYC Comprehensive Waterfront Plan
Released on March 14, 2011, Vision 2020 is the culmination of a year-long, participatory planning process involving multiple agencies and organizations and input from New Yorkers in every borough. Building on the City's success in opening up to the public miles of shoreline that had been inaccessible for decades, and supporting expansion of the maritime industry, Vision 2020 sets the stage for expanded use of our waterfront for parks, housing and economic development, and our waterways for transportation, recreation and natural habitats. The 10-year plan lays out a vision for the future with new citywide policies and site-specific recommendations.
Gowanus Canal Corridor Study
The Department of City Planning has initiated a study of the Gowanus Canal corridor to establish a comprehensive framework to guide future land use changes.
