SECTION I: DISTANCE FROM THE LOT LINE Chapter 7 of the New York Building Code defines fire separa=on distance as the distance measured from the building face to one of the following:

To an imaginary line between two buildings on the same tax lot

The closest interior tax lot line

To the centerline of the street, and alley or public space

Once the fire separa=on distance has been established, BC Table 705.8 will be used to see if exterior openings are allowed, and how much.
