R1 R2 R3 R4 R5 R6 R7 R8 R9 R10
In all districts, as indicated, to the extent that the provisions of Section 23-82 (Building Walls Regulated by Minimum Spacing Requirements) do not apply, the minimum distance between different walls of the same building shall conform to the regulations set forth in the following Sections:
Section 23-84 (Outer Court Regulations)
Section 23-85 (Inner Court Regulations)
Section 23-86 (Minimum Distance Between Legally Required Windows and Walls or Lot Lines)
Section 23-87 (Permitted Obstructions in Courts).
For the purposes of these Sections, abutting buildings on a single zoning lot shall be considered a single building.
However, these regulations shall not apply to any single- or two-family detached residence.
A corner of a court may be cut off between walls of the same building, provided that the length of the wall of such cut-off does not exceed seven feet.
The Commissioner of Buildings may approve minor recesses, projections and architectural treatment of the outline of courts as long as these variations do not substantially change the depth or width of the court.
