Civic Hacknight - Transit Transportation Cycling

[Note about the venue - You must RSVP with the name that appears on a photo ID. In order to give building security a list, RSVPs will close at 4:00 PM the day of the event.] 

This is our traditional hacknight with a bit of a twist. With the growing realm of NYC transit and transportation data, every month we dedicate one hacknight a month to transit, transportation, #BikeNYC, and @CitibikeNYC data.

What is a hacknight?
This night is for technologists, designers, developers, and mapmakers who are working on projects. Consider this to be a bit of a study hall. Bring your projects, apps, datasets, and questions, and we will try to collectively answer them. 

Lighting talks:
At every hacknight, we feature three lighting talks. These are in-depth 3 to 5 min long presentations that dive into projects YOU are working on. To present, email [masked]

Vijay Pandurangan of will share how he discovered that the recently-published NYC Taxi Trip Data contained hashes that could be de-anonymized.

Emily Goldman, of Cornell U, Department of City & Regional Planning will share her work on mapping the rent-stabilized building stock in Brooklyn. Having joined a PDF from the Rent Guidelines Board to the Pluto layer, she would next like to move beyond buildings, to units.
