Independence Day 2017 is now just a memory, so here’s to hoping that you captured all of those special moments with family and friends to share on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, or any other outlet you have. We are 60 days away from the next good reason to fire up the grill and celebrate the end of summer. Unless, of course, you have a significant birthday or anniversary coming up.
Make sure you take the opportunity in the next couple of weeks to review the NYC Fuel Gas Code §623 and the NYC Fire Code §307.5 that explain the regulations and requirements for installing and operating a barbecue grill in your NYC apartment. Due to the close proximity of each resident, apartments with a balcony BBQ in Manhattan are hard to come by. For this reason, it is important that those tenants lucky enough to have them abide by the city codes so as not to have them banned completely.
In many cases, apartment complexes will have a specific area designated for residents to enjoy an afternoon of sun and fun with access to barbecue grills and, more often than not, a swimming pool. It has become more than a trend to have these features in a common area that is accessible to all tenants, whether it be on a ground floor just outside the building or on a rooftop with a gorgeous view of the surrounding area.
You will need to check with your Super or concierge desk to determine if the grill area is on a first come, first served basis or if a reservation is required. There are few things more frustrating than planning a get-together and finding out there is not an available barbecue grill.
