Thank you for visiting CityLand’s new website

CityLand started in 2004 as a monthly printed newsletter published by the Center for New York City Law at New York Law School. It comprehensively reports New York City’s land use decisions. Agencies covered include the City Planning Commission and the Department of City Planning; the Board of Standards and Appeals; the Landmarks Preservation Commission; the City Council; and related land use judicial decisions.

CityLand tracks public and private land use applications subject to the City’s Uniform Land Use Review Procedure (ULURP) and other land use approval processes. CityLand identifies the City agency involved, the type of action being requested (e.g., a rezoning, a zoning text amendment, and/or a special permit), and the neighborhood impacted by the proposal. When possible, Cityland identifies the developers, attorneys, planners, engineers and architects involved.

CityLand is free for everyone. We encourage you to browse our articles and charts, which can also be read in pdf format by clicking on Current Issue, Filings and Decisions, or by searching the Archive.
