i have all 5 boroughs, but the other way to get it is at:

*.ai files export to *.dwg in Illustrator

have a 3d model of Manhatten as well, if needed.

i think its been changed since the last time i downloaded something from (3 years ago??)

this should work

now AI CSII and V11 might not work, I know AI V 10 and CSI work for conversion...

last resort just email me and I'll give a link to download in CAD format (2007)...the files are huge

why doesn't archinect set up an online archive of useful things like this?

1) cad maps of cities
2) cad blocks
3) photoshop entourage

i think its posted on the website cben.net
if you can locate the shape files (.SHP), you can convert it to dwg with FME (its a 14 day evaluation, www.safe.com)

Could i get that file too. jmlura@uh.edu There are large file sharing websites like megaupload, rapidshare, dropbox, and yousendit that can host the file for sharing.

Thanks,
John

Hey everyone, I need a CAD or vector map of NYC too—but specifically for the building footprints in Manhattan and the defining bodies of water surrounding. (and the other boroughs if possible). I do not need streets, parks, etc.

Additionally, I need building footprint maps for the following cities if anyone has them:

Los Angeles
Toronto
Tokyo
Madrid
Paris
Hong Kong
London
Chicago
Mexico City
Munich
Dallas
Sao Paulo
Rome
San Francisco
Seoul

Thanks!
Sean

Hey everybody.  I know it has been awhile since this conversation took place but is there anyone who has a detailed DWG of the 5 boroughs in CAD format?

hello all, I came across this forum also searching for a DWG. The one posted above is pretty decent and includes all 5 boros however its not quite as accurate as the following, which is for now of Manhattan only (plus the perimeter shorelines of NJ and BK)

http://wirednewyork.com/forum/showthread.php?t=22948&page=4

the last post on this page of the forum contains a link that will start an automatic download. its a rather large file which is why I haven't reposted it elsewhere. 

I agree with nb072 above, we should find a way to contact archinect and see if they can't create a resources section as I'm sure many could use this amongst other helpful files and it'd clean up the forums quite a bit. Further a centrally located DWG could be updated by many over time and ultimately include all boros - each contributing their sites to slowly build it up. For now all my sites are in Manhattan but in the future I'll return here if I end up drawing details in BK and so on, and attach an updated file.

Hello, 

I followed all the links on http://wirednewyork.com/forum/showthread.php?t=22948&page=4 and the website that was originally hosting it no longer exist, so I can't figure out a way to download it. 

If anyone knows of a location of this file it would be greatly beneficial to my thesis. 

Thanks in advance for your help.
