NYC Health Ratings was founded in 2011 to help provide the missing link in deciding on where to eat.
NYC Health Ratings provides the tools necessary to help make the right decision on where to eat. We have detailed inspection result for the over 24,000 restaurants in the five boroughs. The data we provide is arguably just as important as the usual criteria people use to decide on where they will dine. Our aim is to make this information as pervasive as possible to help people make the right choice.
NYC Health Ratings was founded in March 2011 by Aaron Dancygier. As a life long New Yorker and a huge tech nerd I thought this would be great for the city while being fun to build. I believe the data is incredibly valuable to the citizens of this city. Why hide it? Use it and share it.
If you were wondering how this site was built, it's written in Ruby with the Ruby on Rails framework, Mysql, Prototype.js, jQuery, Apache Solr, MongoDB and RabbitMQ. The data automation scripts are written in Perl.
