Zoning in Action: Building Blocks of the Upper East Side

Floor area ratio, R8B, and POPS, oh my! Zoning is one of the fundamental factors that shapes the look and feel of our city, but NYC’s zoning resolution weighs in at nearly 4,000 pages – not exactly light reading. Led by urban planner George Janes and longtime advocate Ronda Wist, this walk will translate abstract land use concepts from the page to street, as they uncover zoning and preservation tools in action on the Upper East Side.

Presented as part of Jane's Walk 2018, hosted by the Municpal Art Society.

Sunday, May 6th
1:00 p.m.
Rain or Shine.

Meeting location will be provided to registrants the week preceding the tour.
