You must have a Ticket Seller Business license to sell, give, or transfer any ticket to a person or company for them to vend the ticket in a public space. The New York City Department of Consumer and Worker Protection (DCWP) issues this license.
A place of entertainment, mode of transportation, or guided tour does not require a Ticket Seller Business license.
