NYC Administrative Code 26-182, states that all signs in New York City, including the 5 boroughs, must be performed by or under the supervision of a NYC Licensed Sign Hanger.

  • All signs require Sign Permits issued by the NYC Department of Buildings (DOB).

  • Each sign requires a NYC DOB Sign Permit. Each Lighted sign requires a NYC DOB Electrical Permit.

  • All signs must meet the zoning requirements for each respective location.

  • Licensed Expeditors, Engineers, and Architects may only apply for Sign Permits. They cannot legally pull them.

  • NYC Licensed Sign Hangers are the only persons legally allowed to pull a Sign Permit in NYC.

  • There are less than 44 NYC Licensed Sign Hangers in the entire City of New York and only 3 in Brooklyn.

We can apply for and pull all required Sign Permits.


NYC Landmarks Preservation Commission (LPC) permits are required for exterior work that alter the exterior of landmarked properties, including sign installation. Space Sign, Inc. can obtain LPC approvals.

Space Sign is also licensed throughout the Tristate area (NY, NJ, CT) for Sign Permits and Installations.


NYC DOB (Dept of Buildings) and NYC ECB (Environmental Control Board) issue violations for all types of signs, awnings, and canopies that are in violation of the NYC Administrative Codes.

These violations apply to signs that are:

  • Installed without a NYC Sign Permit

  • Not performed using a NYC Licensed Sign Hanger

  • Exceeding the zoning regulations

  • Lighted signs, landmarks and multiple variations of infractions of the codes.


NYC DOB & ECB can issue multiple violations to the same sign until the violations are corrected and cleared.


Each Violation is now considered a Class 1 Hazardous Violation. 
Each violation may incur $10,000 plus a $5,000 surcharge.


NYC Sign Violations can only be corrected and cleared by NYC Licensed Sign Hangers.

Space Sign is a NYC Licensed Sign Hanger and can remove NYC DOB and NYC ECB Sign Violations.


All signs in NYC are required to have NYC Sign Permits and must be installed by NYC Licensed Sign Hangers.
