A common fear across New York City, especially in the summer, is an improperly installed window air conditioner unit falling out of the sky and crashing onto the sidewalk below. While that’s certainly something everyone would like to avoid, nobody seems concerned about the millions of bricks dangling above their heads. For that, you can thank NYC Local Law 10 and NYC Local Law 11, Local Law 11 Inspection or the Facade Inspection Safety Program (FISP).
Local Law 11 Inspection
The law ensures all buildings over six stories tall have their facades inspected at least every five years. In the 80s and 90s, New York City suffered unfortunate events where pieces of buildings became dislodged and struck people walking below. The law has been refined over the years – starting with NYC Local Law 10, NYC Local Law 11, Local Law 11 Inspection, and now FISP – to ensure maximum safety.
