Research and Data Assistance Request (RADAR)

Welcome to the RADAR Gallery!
For the last few years, we’ve been working with the Manhattan Borough President and NYC’s Community Boards to address their data and analytical needs. Our Civic Innovation Fellows are trained to address difficult & complex data needs. On this page, you’ll find some examples of the various RADAR projects they worked on.

COVID UPDATE — are you a non-profit or community based organization? We are opening up our services to all who need them.

If you are a Borough President, Council Member, Community Board staff member, or Agency, we welcome your requests.

Need assistance or a consultation? Fill out our RADAR Form!

Our time to review your request is 2-3 business days.
