NYCitymap also appears to provide PLUTO data in easily parsable JSON format, see:

It's like an undocumented API

At the meetup someone was asking about why there is no geolocation information in the DOB data, only BIN and BBL.  They mentioned that they had purchased PLUTO from DCP in order to geocode the building data.  There may be another way, using data available in the data mine.

Under Geographic Data, Agency=DOITT, there is a Building Perimeter Outline geodatabase.  You can join this data to your DOB data by BIN to get the polygon building outlines.  If you prefer to use a single center point you can use a GIS to provide a center point for each polygon.

I hope someone finds this helpful.
