Buildings in Hurricane Evacuation Zones Must Post Notices

New York City Local Law 103/2019 requires that the owners of any multi-family residential building within a designated hurricane evacuation zone must post a notice in a prominent place within the building relating to evacuation. (Please note that these zones are distinct from flood zones, and a building may be in one type of zone but not the other.) The notice must inform occupants of which hurricane evacuation zone the building is in and how to find the closest hurricane evacuation centers. This posting requirement applies to cooperatives and condominiums as well as rental buildings. A search tool and map to determine whether an address is located in a hurricane evacuation zone can be found at and the posters in many languages can be downloaded at
