All of OACE’s sites are now included on the NYCity Map, a comprehensive, searchable online map managed by the NYC Department of Information Technology and Telecommunications.
The map can be searched by address, zip code, intersection, place of interest, borough block lot, community district or City Council district.
The process of finding an OACE site on this map is as follows:
1) Go to the main NYCity Map site (http://gis.nyc.gov/doitt/nycitymap/)
2) Under “Search for a location,” select the type of search you’d like to run from the drop-down menu (i.e. address, zip code, etc)
3) Fill in the required information. Please note that in the “address” search, you must enter in the building number in the “Address Number” field and the street name in the “Street Name” field. So if you were entering in "475 Nostrand Avenue," you would put “475” in Address Number and then put “Nostrand Avenue” in the Street Name field. If searching by address, you must also select the borough field.
4) Click “Find” – this brings up a map of the area you have selected
5) On the bottom-right hand side of the screen, there is a gray bar that says “Show Additional Data on Map.” Move your mouse so the cursor is over that gray bar, and click on it. A list of options should come up.
6) Under the fifth category of options (“Education”), click the first option – “Adult and Continuing Education (DOE/OACE),” which has a blue/orange/green symbol next to it.
7) All nearby OACE sites will show up on the map, represented by the blue/orange/green symbol.
8) When you see a site on the map, move your cursor over it. The name of the site will come up. To see more information, click on the blue/orange/symbol and a box will come up, with the name, address, and phone number of the site.
Note: To change the size of the map you are viewing, go to the upper left-hand corner of the map where there is a horizontal line with a plus (+) and minus (-) sign on either end. If you would like to see a larger area on the map, click the minus (-) sign. If you would like to zoom in and see a more detailed area, click the plus (+) sign.
