I am developing a real estate application using react-native and node express, and I'm really close to the end, I have used google maps API to display the property on a map and for the address auto complete.

now the only thing I'm missing is when a user want to filter the properties he can select a city (using google maps autocomplete api) and then I want to let him choose a neighbourhood inside the city but as far as I could found google maps don't provide that service (which is really weird for me because you can for example, see a neighbourhood boundaries in google map) so I have 2 questions:

1) Do you have any recommendation for an API who knows to return a list of all neighbourhood within a city ? 2) How could I make sure if my property (full address) is within that neighbourhood area?

That things appear in million real estates website I'm surprised it is so hard to find

  • You might ask for a dataset on opendata.stackexchange.com and use that .... Jul 26 '19 at 9:14
  • Sometimes a city might have formal "neighborhood" definitions for its own planning; but more often than not neighborhoods are much more organic - the people living in/near them give them names to explain the world around them.

  • Geonames.org is probably worth a look, although I don't know how complete the data at the neighborhood level is, and whether it has decent polygons for them (rather than centroid points)
