"Greeting customers as “Mr.” or “Mrs.” could be costly for New York City businesses under Mayor Bill de Blasio.
"The Gotham mayor’s Commission on Human Rights says businesses that fail to address customers by their preferred gender pronouns are in violation of the law and could be subject to penalties.
"The Commission issued a “legal enforcement guidance” for the New York City Human Rights Law, which apparently “requires employers and converted entities to use an individual’s preferred name, pronoun and title (e.g., Ms./Mrs.) regardless of the individual’s sex assigned at birth, anatomy, gender, medical history, appearance, or the sex indicated on the individual’s identification.”
"The guidance also notes that some people prefer non-gender-binary pronouns, including “they/them/theirs or ze/hir.”
. . . 
“' For example, repeatedly calling a transgender woman ‘him’ or ‘Mr.’ after she has made clear which pronouns and title she uses,” the guidance says." . . .
