This bill would allow a home to be built on an unmapped street or highway in New York City without a review by the Board of Standards and Appeals, if the New York City Department of Buildings determines that there are not less than five certificates of occupancy for one or two family residential dwellings which have already been issued for such unmapped street or highway.

The bill does not limit the jurisdiction of the Board of Standards and Appelas to determine, the application of the zoning resolution.
This act shall take effect immediately.
