I'm sorry to hear you're having payment issues - especially on such an iconic project. To clarify on licensure and the ability to lien in New York: For all projects, in order to file a mechanics lien, the claimant filing the lien must have been licensed to perform the work they're claiming a lien on. Specifically for home improvement contracts, a subcontractor could lose the ability to file a lien if the general contractor on the job is not licensed to perform the home improvement contract. To perform a license search on other New York companies, this tool should help. To search home improvement licenses, New York Consumer Affairs has this tool.
