Item 4 at page 14 of
says that the Building Inspection Superintendent was supposed to tell you the maximum occupancy at the time a certificate of occupancy was issued. Do you have a certificate of occupancy?
has a table that specifies dining rooms can hold 70 people per 1000 square feet which I believe translates to 214 people in 2128 square feet.
That would apply to commercial facilities, so I still believe that your local Building Inspection Superintendent is supposed to tell you the maximum occupancy based on the layout of the room.
The table I cited states:
Food and beverage service Persons per 1000 square feet
Bars and cocktail lounges 100
Cafeterias, fast food 100
Dining rooms 70
That comes out to 148 people in your space, I'm sorry my prior calculation was inaccurate.
Thank you, ***** *****'t get enough sleep.
