that information is determined by the governing body of the property either the city or county.
go to their offcee or website and look under zoning. You should find a complete description of what are the permitted uses for that zoning.

If you are in NYC start with the zoning map you can search by address, make sure you property only has 1 zoning use code, many NYC properties have commercial overlays. If you have an R-4 you can download the information. If you are a real estate professional buy the zoning handbook 2011 edition, all of the zoning information is not on the website. If you are in another state try www.municode.com, they have a free library access.

R4 districts allow all types of ­housing at a slightly higher density than permit­ted in R3-2 districts. The floor area ratio (FAR) of 0.75, plus an attic allowance of up to 20% for inclusion of space under the pitched roof common to these districts, ­usually produces buildings with three stories instead of the two-story homes characteristic of R3 districts. Much of the residential development in North Corona in Queens and Arden Heights in Staten Island is typical of R4 districts.
To accommodate a potential third floor beneath a pitched roof, the perimeter wall in R4 districts may rise to 25 feet before being set back to the maximum building height of 35 feet. Front yards must be 10 feet deep or, if deeper, a minimum of 18 feet to provide sufficient space for on-site parking. Cars may park in the side or rear yard, in the garage or in the front yard within the side lot ribbon; the driveway must be within the side lot ribbon unless the lot is wider than 35 feet. Detached houses must have two side yards that total at least 13 feet and each one must be at least five feet wide. Semi-detached buildings need one side yard with a minimum width of eight feet. The maximum street wall length for a building on a single zoning lot is 185 feet. One off-street parking space is required for each dwelling unit.
