Abstract

This article examines New York City's first attempt to regulate adult entertainment establishments through zoning provisions. Specifically, it discusses whether the adult-use zoning provisions comply with federal and state constitutional requirements, and it examines whether the adult-use amendments would cause a reduction in adult-use establishments in New York City, which would render the amendments constitutionally suspect, and whether its inclusion of topless bars renders the amendments overbroad. The author concludes that the adult-use amendments are consistent, with both federal and state constitutional requirements, and that the adult-use amendments will survive judicial scrutiny.
