New York City Physical Culture Establishments Attorney
Assistance Through The Applications Process
Individuals looking to open any sort of “physical culture establishment” — which could include a yoga studio, pilates studio, nail salon, gym, dance studio, massage parlor, or other place of business that is physical in nature — must file a separate application with the New York Department of Buildings.
The process for obtaining a license to open a physical culture establishment in New York City is long, complicated, and multi-step. Working with an attorney who understands the process and who has been through it before is advisable. Business owners can benefit from the knowledge of an attorney during the many steps of the application and filing process:
- Completion of a long application
- Sending notifications to every local business within two blocks
- Attending an open hearing before a review board
- Many other administrative and legal steps
So far, nearly 100 percent of initial applications are rejected. Individuals looking to start a business must then go back and complete the necessary steps required by the New York Department of Buildings. If successfully completed, a license will be granted, but only after a hefty fine is paid.
