I have two different URL's to JSON data - one works and the other does not.
My call to the openweathermap works fine, but the  citybikeNYC fails.
It looked to me like the structure was the same so not sure why this is happening.


//myURL = 'http://www.citibikenyc.com/stations/json';


myURL = 'http://api.openweathermap.org/data/2.5/find?lat=42.033449&lon=-93.630885&cnt=15&units=imperial';

//load data from external source
	$.ajax({
		url: myURL,
		dataType: 'json',
    	jsonp: false
	}).done(function(data) {
		console.log(data);
	console.log(data.count + ' data count');
		

	});

Thats a cross origin policy error, they need to allow you to access the api or use jsonp

you need your server to load this data, so instead using their address in your code, use your.
an easy server code with php :

proxy.php :
<?PHP
   header('Content-type: application/json');
   echo file_get_contents("http://www.citibikenyc.com/stations/json");
?>

your code now look like :
//myURL = 'http://www.citibikenyc.com/stations/json';
//myURL = 'http://api.openweathermap.org/data/2.5/find?lat=42.033449&lon=-93.630885&cnt=15&units=imperial';

myURL = 'proxy.php'; // if needed, change this the right path : where you put the proxy.php in your website folder

//load data from external source
	$.ajax({
		url: myURL,
		dataType: 'json',
    	jsonp: false
	}).done(function(data) {
		console.log(data);
	console.log(data.count + ' data count');
		

	});
