The NYC Geodatabase (nyc_gdb) is a resource designed for mapping and analyzing city-level features and data in GIS. The database comes in two formats: a Spatialite geodatabase built on SQLite that can be used in open source software like QGIS and the Spatialite GUI, and a personal geodatabase built on MS Access that can be used in ArcGIS.

NYC Geodatabase - Latest Version (January 2020)

For previous versions of the database see the NYC Geodatabase Archive.

If you are using QGIS 3.x and Spatialite and some layers are not rendering, read this post.
