SoHo-NoHo residents file suit against neighborhood rezoning


A group representing SoHo and NoHo residents filed a lawsuit against the city and the Department of City Planning (DCP) in New York County State Supreme Court on Thursday seeking to prevent the implementation of the SoHo-NoHo rezoning that passed the City Council in December.

The group, which goes by the Coalition for Fairness in SoHo and NoHo, is arguing that the rezoning violates state and federal constitutional rights as well as city and state environmental review regulations.
