On request, the Department of City Planning will verify in writing the zoning district(s) in which a property is located. Requests for official Zoning Verification letters should be made in writing, and should include the address, borough, tax block and lot(s) of the property and your contact information in case we have a question. The fee for a zoning verification request is $110.00 for each separate property; however, a property comprised of multiple contiguous tax lots is treated as a single request.

The letter should be sent to the Zoning Division, Attention: Nicole Vargas, NYC Department of City Planning, 120 Broadway, 31st Floor, New York, NY 10271.

The Department of City Planning accepts checks, money orders and credit cards for application fees. We accept Visa, Master Card, American Express and Discover. If paying with a check or money order, please make it payable to the City of New York for the total amount of the required fees in order to be considered complete. You can pay either in person at our offices at 120 Broadway, over the phone or by fax.
