What are the hours that construction activity is permitted in the City of New York?

  • Construction activities are restrained to Monday through Friday from 7:00 a.m. to 6:00

        p.m.  An after hour or weekend variance must be obtained to work at all other hours.  

What do I need if I want to place a bike rack, planter, etc. on the sidewalk in front of my building?

  • You need a revocable consent which is the grant of a right to an individual or organization to construction and maintain certain structures on, over or under the property of the City (that is, the streets and sidewalks). The City retains the right to revoke a revocable consent at any time.
