New York City Neighborhood Tabulation area ID[edit]

Originally proposed at Wikidata:Property proposal/Place

DescriptionThe NYC Department of City Planning maintains a public dataset with geographic shapes for neighborhoods in NYC. (NTA aka NYNTA) Each of the neighborhoods in the dataset has a unique identifier of that neighborhood. We have Wikipedia articles on many of those same neighborhoods. The dataset makes some compromises so that shapes meet constraints like no overlapping, no splitting a single USGS census tract into multiple NTAs.
Data typeExternal identifier
Domainitems of neighborhood in New York City (Q287414)
Allowed values(BK|BX|MN|QN|SI)\d{2}
Example 1New Brighton (Q4822403) → SI22
Example 2Flushing (Q1058775) → QN22
Example 3Great Kills (Q5599388) → SI54
Example 4Port Richmond (Q7230888) → SI28
Number of IDs in source~195 but some of those may not actually be neighborhoods (I think they include shapes for areas like cemeteries?)
Expected completenesseventually complete (Q21873974)


The original inspiration was for use on Wikidata:Translatathon NYC/es but I'm sure there's other uses I'm not thinking of right now. OTOH since they don't map exactly to neighborhoods maybe they shouldn't be linked to the neighborhoods at all? and what about NTAs that contain more than one on wiki neighborhood? should we have a new item for each NTA and then link the NTA items to the existing neighborhood items?

    you mean like a formatter URL? I don't know any webpage that displays info on a single nynta at a time. --Jeremyb (talk) 01:24, 5 April 2019 (UTC)
    @ZI Jony: see here? --Jeremyb (talk) 17:49, 23 June 2019 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting question.svg Question For this part of the regex (\d{2}|0[1-9]), \d{2} "gives" the numbers from 00 to 99 and 0[1-9] "gives" ... the numbers from 00 to 99. No? Keep the first one. Cordially. --Eihel (talk) 18:23, 6 April 2019 (UTC)
    No, that's not what 0[1-9] means. I think wrote the regex a bit too rushed. fixed now I think. --Jeremyb (talk) 15:44, 7 April 2019 (UTC)
    I was wrong. I meant from 01 to 09 for 0[1-9]. What I meant was that one of the choices encompasses the other. But I see that you have already made the change. Thank you. --Eihel (talk) 23:07, 24 May 2019 (UTC)
