Sorry, missed to mention. The files have been cleared of metadata and don't
contain any licensing information whatsoever. This is all captured in the
download screen and the Data Policy and Open Standards Manual on the open
data site (https://nycopendata.socrata.com/). This is consistent with NYC
open data policy.

Nothing special, we're using import accounts.

We've thought a lot about this and I've consulted here with Ian Dees and
the proposing team. It turns out that the challenge really won't be
buildings in areas that don't have any buildings at all, but rather the
areas where we need to do conflation work. We're putting this theory to a
test now in our first imports.
