How can I access a large data set of energy models (i.e. inputs) and measures (i.e. outputs)?

I am looking for a database of simulations, ideally with New York region, so that I can analyze the measures recommended by the energy model.

@zharb_ny FYI your question is very similar to this post, which only had a response to review the commercial prototype models for EnergyPlus. Unfortunately, you have to download a folder for a combination of prototype and energy code/standard for all ASHRAE climate zones, but then you can review the CZ 4A models for the New York region.

The ResStock and ComStock End Use Savings Shapes datasets (here and here) are large repositories of energy models and simulation results. ResStock uses ~550,000 simulations to represent the U.S. residential housing stock while ComStock uses ~350,000 simulations to represent the U.S. commercial building stock. Each has about 10 efficiency measures/packages that are evaluated on top of the baseline simulations.
