The NYC Zoning Resolution At 50
Wednesday, Jun 8, 2011
New York City’s zoning resolution turns 50 this year. As the city has grown, so has this document – it has increased by more than 900 pages and numerous new special districts have been created. Considering how dramatically the city has changed since 1961, does the resolution still adequately and comprehensively address the challenges the city faces today? Is it necessary to revamp or rewrite the regulations as many cities around the country are doing?
