The northern part of this garden (block 3540 lot 40) lot is part of the Zerega Industrial Business Zone (IBZ): https://www.nycedc.com/industry/industrial/nyc-industrial-business-zones. The IBZ program is intended to protect manufacturing businesses and jobs from the pressures of the residential and commercial real estate markets by creating zones in the outer boroughs where manufacturing is incentivized, commercial uses are limited, and residential rezoning is not allowed. These protections are not enshrined in law, however, and depend on the priorities of politicians for enforcement.
