Welcome to the Mayor's Office of Environmental Remediation's Searchable Property Environmental E-Database (SPEED) Portal. SPEED enables users to examine environmental and other data on properties in New York City. You can find information about certain sites in City, State, and Federal environmental remediation programs. You can also search for individual vacant tax parcels and view historical information, such as past land uses and historical and topographical maps. Further, the site has the general features of NYCityMap - map tools, aerial photos, political and geographic districts, and building footprint maps.

Users can browse by navigating with the map interface or by searching for desired properties or locations, create reports, or print maps showing spatial information. Registered users can save properties of interest, make notes, and be notified of updates. If you are new to SPEED, please visit the User Guide/Help Document for more information about how to use the portal.

For the SPEED Portal, OER developed one data set, the Vacant Property Database (VPD), which focuses on privately-owned lots that are zoned for commercial and manufacturing uses and that are unimproved, i.e. they had no structure or use on them according to 2009 PLUTO (Primary Land Use Tax Lot Output) data that are compiled for governmental use by the NYC Department of City Planning. Lots that are known to have been developed since the collection of the 2009 PLUTO data are not included in the database. If you wish to inform us of any updated information about the lots in the database or to provide any other feedback, please contact us.
