In NY Commercial Zoning always, sometimes Industrial Z.
Careful, most local ordinances will not allow you to operate due to 'environmental' concerns. I know of only two locations where you might be able to do this, depending on how much space you require and your budget. Alex

zoning is specific to the County, or sometimes, city. It may be different in each. Pick an area, contact a COMMERCIAL agent in that area, and ask. If you are looking in the Sarasota / Bradenton area bmilhoan@hembreeco.com
