New York City Zoning Guide


In order to help demystify New York City's zoning regulations we have created this ultra-condensed version of the zoning code for the various categories of Residential, Commercial and Manufacturing districts.

Each synopsis provides general requirements for property development including setbacks, parking, floor area ratios, lot coverage, and maximum building heights, among many other variables. This summary is not intended to be a substitute for the Zoning Resolution itself.
