Chelsea Rezoning
New Zoning Districts
 

On September 9, 1999, the City Council approved the Department's rezoning application for the Chelsea neighborhood of Manhattan.

1. A map showing the new zoning districts that became effective after 9/9/99,
2. A table containing the key to the numbered districts in the map, and
3. A table summarizing the bulk restrictions of the new districts.

The map and tables on this page are also available in PDF format (288 K).
