Open New York Food Service Establishment Inspections API - Developers

The Open New York Food Service Establishment Inspections API is a service part of the State of New York's data.ny.gov open data initiative. The API is meant to assist developers in creating tools that interact with the data on Health Data NY. This API provides access to a dataset that lists all New York Food Service Establishment Inspections beginning in 2005. The searchable API can be used to retrieve the name and location of active establishments that are currently running, as well as any associated violations that were found during the inspection. The dataset is updated on a monthly basis, and therefore may not reflect any remediations made and the current establishment status. The API can be accessed through HTTP communication, and available response types include JSON, XML, and CSV. The documentation features a live testing interface to run example requests. All requests must posses an app token in order to be authenticated.
