Multiple outlets, including Curbed New York, are reporting on the New York City (NYC) Department of Buildings' (DOB) first-ever elevator report, a comprehensive compilation of statistics and other facts about the city's 84,000 vertical-transportation (VT) devices. The report, presented in a series of interactive maps, gives facts and figures on important topics, such as the type and number of elevators in each community district, and even the number of devices in each building. Need to know about violations? There's a map showing complaints across the city. Are you a history buff? Another map takes readers on a journey through NYC's elevator past.
