The Lincoln Square BID is not in a position to answer specific questions regarding the details of the new law, but suggests that if you need immediate information, you contact the NYC Department of Consumer Affairs at 311, or visit, where you will find both specific information on the law, as well as a series of Frequently Asked Questions.
