Think I got it - see here gis.stackexchange.com/questions/125043/…

comment Is there a python option to “join attributes by location”?
Would it be possible to have the neighborhoods as the output? I'm trying to do something where I want to use points to select polygons gis.stackexchange.com/questions/125043/… not using ArcGIS. I tried switching the input and the output shapefiles in this code without luck.

Yeah, I'm going to have to do this in something that is not arcpy - just tested out modified code using Spatial Join and any and all arcpy attempts are going to take weeks to process. I need something on the order of day/days.

This is a similar processing function - saying to use Spatial Join - gis.stackexchange.com/questions/12448/…

That's an interesting approach. I have some stuff processing so I'll try and do some tests on that approach. I'm down this rabbit hole sort of b/c I know it works. Can MakeFeatureLayer_management and SelectLayerByLocation_management be improved using in_memory?

The Esri processing is taking way too long (weeks vs. ogr2ogr hours/days). I have 5 buffer sizes for 80,000+ grid points and I need to select only the exploded buffer features that can be selected by the grid point (buffer centroid).

If you open a File Geodatabase folder - the files listed are not the Feature classes in a File Geodatabase (as far as I know) but files that support the FGDB.

comment Intersect Shapefiles using Shapely
Also, in general, when using ogr should all my shapefiles be in the same folder? (Sorry for all these questions, I'm quickly trying to move from arcpy to FOSS4G)

Ahh, and I could probably put this in a python script by using os.system(theGDALCommandAbove)

Nice (first time I cd'd to data, but reread and it worked). Output seems the same as the above but did get this message: Warning 1: organizePolygons() received an unexpected geometry. Either a polygon with interior rings, or a polygon with less than 4 points, or a non-Polygon geometry. Return arguments as a collection. Warning 1: Geometry of polygon of fid 2016 cannot be translated to Simple Geometry. All polygons will be contained in a multi polygon. --- Should I worry about that message?
