Where Not to Buy & Eat Food in New York
The New York World has mapped the New York State Department of Agriculture and Markets supermarket inspections from January 2008 to July 2013.
Inspectors visit every grocery store at least once a year. The New York World has mapped all the supermarkets that had 'critical deficiencies' flagged in the inspections. Users can search the map by neighborhood, zipcode or address to find the local supermarkets near them that have been shown to have issues deemed as "an immediate threat to the public health and welfare."
The NYC BigMaps has used the Your Mapper map creation tool to map restaurant inspections and 311 service calls in New York City.
The restaurant inspections map displays New York City Department of Health inspections across 5 boroughs since Jan 2008. You can search the map by category, date range, keyword, and location. The map then displays restaurants on the map at the location you searched.
Green map markers indicate restaurants with no health violations.
