Zoning Lots in New York City
Zoning Lot or Lot are the phrases that we use to describe a piece of land that is located on a Block in a certain neighborhood.
Block is the city area that is surrounded by streets and formed the Block, usually containing several buildings.
Blocks are usually square or rectangular but sometimes you can find them with different shapes too.
Generally, we have three (3) different types of Lot:
- Corner Lot
- Through Lot
- Interior Lot
The corner lot as you can expect from the name is located on the corner side of the City Block and bounded by streets.
Corner lots don’t have rear yards, instead, they have two side yards and two front yards.
The other one is The Interior lot
The interior lot is the other piece of land on the block that one of the edges faces the street ( the main street which gives you access to the building )
And the other edges are surrounded by the other lots
And the last one is The Through lot
The lot on a block which neither a corner lot, nor an interior lot, is considered a through lot, and it extended from one side of the block to the other side.
