NYC Bike Map is a free interactive bike network map for New York City that combines information from NYC OpenData, Citi Bike and other sources. It currently displays the NYC Bike lane network, bike racks, bike shelters, Citi Bike docks, Oonee Pods and Bike tips + hazards.
NYC Bike Map was created and is under development by Todd Lee-Millstein. It is also open-source so anybody is able to contribute to it if they want.
Currently, there is no good interactive bike map for NYC. DOT only provides a PDF version of the NYC bike network which lacks a lot of functionality. Google Maps also has an interactive version of the bike map but it doesn't provide the same depth of information that NYC Bike Map has.
NYCBikeMap gets its data from a variety of different sources including NYC Open Data, Citi Bike and more. This is a full list of all the data used:

NYC Bike Map is still under development so new features are constantly being added. If you would like to see any features added or you have any suggestions, let us know! Here is a broad list of features that will be added, in no particular order:
Protected Bike Lanes include all dedicated bike lanes that are seperated from vehicular traffic.
Standard Bike lanes that mix with vehicular traffic.
Marked routes mixed with vehicular traffic.
Temporary bike lanes were implemented during the Covid-19 pandemic by NYC DOT. The conditions of these lanes are oftentimes variable and many have not been maintained properly.
Open streets are streets that were closed to vehicular traffic during the Covid-19 pandemic. Some open streets are not closed to vehicular traffic at all times.
Citi bike dock locations, updated July 2021. Learn more about Citi Bike here.
There are a few dedicated bike shelter locations located throughout the city. Find out more here.
Publicly availible bike racks with capacity.
Stations with ADA acessible facilities. This usually means it's a lot easier to take your bike on the train. Learn more about taking your bike on public transit here.
Areas where you are supposed to dismount and "walk" your bike.
Be prepared to carry your bike up/down stairs.
