Akil Harris has created new tool to look at NYC Crash Stats. This online map takes NYPD’s improved crash stat data and gives you easy access to the following views – City Council districts, Community Board zones, Neighborhoods – as defined by the city, Police Precincts, or Zip Codes.
This is phenomenal! This year’s NYC BigApps 2014 has grown what we pioneered last year. Last year, we helped changed the focus of NYC BigApps from being a “startup” competition to a “civic challenge” competition. No longer is the challenge to build a company, but now it is to solve a civic problem.
This year, the community has responded. Tomorrow is the first big milestone and by the looks of it, BetaNYC members have submitted close to 20% of the apps!
