About the HDC
The Housing Data Coalition (HDC) is a group of individuals and organizations who collaborate on their use of public data to further housing justice in New York City. In the face of the real estate industry’s escalating exploitation of housing data to drive speculation and displacement, HDC seeks to make public data more accessible and actionable for housing justice groups. Through a structure of working groups and monthly meetings, HDC provides opportunities for members to connect, learn, and give mutual support to a variety of projects involving housing data.
Check out the gallery of tools and resources created by Housing Data Coalition members including: Who Owns What, NYC Database, Landlord Lookup Tool, JustFix.nyc, HeatSeek, Displacement Alert Project Map, Neighborhood Data Portal, and NYC Building Monitor

#BetaBagels is a BetaNYC event series of experimental breakfast salons for change-makers and do-ers who want to broaden their perspective of NYC government, civic technology, data science, and service design. #BetaBagels is open to all and hosted by BetaNYC and the Manhattan Borough President Gale A. Brewer; we are inspired by our friends in LA who host Data + Donuts.
Breakfast is provided with support from Microsoft Cities. Thank you!
