Zoning regulations govern the use of space and land in New York City and impact businesses in several ways. These rules determine the size and use of buildings and structures, where certain practices such as manufacturing and retail can occur, and the population densities allowed across all of New York City's neighborhoods.
Businesses are required by law to adhere to zoning regulations, which can be city-wide or specific to certain neighborhoods. Please consult the information provided below for relevant information on zoning policy.
