BOARD OF STANDARDS AND APPEALS
The Board of Standards and Appeals (BSA) is an independent board of the City of New York that has several roles. The BSA has the power to waive certain provisions of the Zoning Resolution of the City of New York by granting variances. It also has jurisdiction to issue certain special permits and BSA review can also be sought to reverse decisions made by the New York City Department of Buildings.
