DOT Permits: Revocable Consent

sidewalk, such as benches or lampposts, you must apply for a revocable consent
through the New York City Department of Transportation (DOT). A revocable
consent is the grant of a right to an individual or organization to construct
and maintain certain structures on, over or under the inalienable property of
the City (that is, the streets and sidewalks).

The revocable consent cannot be sublet, assigned, or transferred without the
prior written approval of DOT.
