Data like building footprints would sure be nice though I'd be
cautious about dumping data in that the community could do a good job
of collecting and maintaining.
The community-- that's the other issue and think it would be important
to get the local mappers group going more with mapping parties. I did
one with Wikimedia NYC folks and maybe we/they could do another but it
will take more than that. There also is an OSM NYC meetup.com group
which could be reactivated
