I have a big front yard and I wanted to create playground for my kids. I just cant find anywhere if I can install fence in my front yard. Nobody on my block has one and I dont have a corner property.

Hi Lukas,

I found this information below on the city planning website. Please check with them to make sure.

The maximum height for walls and fences would be reduced from eight to four feet, except on corner lots where six-foot fences will be permitted. City Planning S.I NY 718-556-7240, Pat is very helpful.

Hello Lukas, the answer appears to be yes according to the NYC Building Dept. Link I have attached;
Check this out and I think you will agree. However you should verify this information before erecting the fence.
