what's the answer??

It appears that there is no license necessary in New Rochelle and that it is possible to open the shop in a commercial zone; however, it appears that eventually there could be an issue with the hookah bars in the future if the law changes; so possibly a license or a permit may be required eventually. But now it appears that there is no specific license necessary for a hookah bar in New Rochelle. We can discuss more if you would like to do so.

I would like to make sure if start having hookah avalibel for costumers, I don't want to get fined

As I mentioned, I cannot find an ordinance or law against a Hookah lounge or a requirement for a license in New Rochelle. However, the FDA regulates all tobacco products, including e-cigarettes, hookah tobacco, and cigars. If you sell tobacco products, you must comply with all applicable federal laws and regulations for retailers. Here is a link to a website that includes a video of what is needed to comply with Federal Laws:

https://www.fda.gov/tobaccoproducts/guidancecomplianceregulatoryinformation/retail/ucm205021.htm

And here is a link that discusses New York regulations:
