What law says you can not drink in public in New York City?
New York City Administrative Code, section 10-125, consumption of alcohol in public: $ 10-125 Consumption of alcohol on streets prohibited. a. Definitions. Whenever used in this section, the following terms are defined as follows: 1. Alcoholic beverage. Any liquid intended for human consumption containing more than one-half of one percent (.005) of alcohol by volume. 2. Public place. A place to which the public or a substantial group of persons has access including, but not limited to, any highway, street, road, sidewalk, parking area, shopping area, place of amusement, playground, park or beach located within the city except that the definition of a public place shall not include those premises duly licensed for the sale and consumption of alcoholic beverages on the premises or within their own private property. Such public place shall also include the interior of any stationary motor vehicle which is on any highway, street, road, parking area, shopping area, playground, park or beach located within the city. b. No person shall drink or consume an alcoholic beverage, or possess, with intent to drink or consume, an open container containing an alcoholic beverage in any public place except at a block party, feast or similar function for which a permit has been obtained. c. Possession of an open container containing an alcoholic beverage by any person shall create a rebuttable presumption that such person did intend to consume the contents thereof in violation of this section. d. Nothing in this section shall be deemed to prohibit the consumption of an alcoholic beverage in any duly licensed establishment whose certificate of occupancy extends upon a street. e. Any person who shall be found to have violated any of the provisions of this section shall be liable for a civil penalty of not more than one hundred ($100) dollars for each violation, which may be recovered in a proceeding before the environmental control board. Such proceeding shall be commenced by the service of a notice of violation returnable before such board. This is a civil, not a criminal, violation. As such you would not count this as being "arrested".

Yes, it is safe to ride public transportation in New York City. New York City is the safest major city in the U.S., and has been for several years now.
The Library Lions are named "Patience" and "Fortitude" When people go up the steps to the main entrance, they walk "between the lions".
New York City's water supply comes from the New York City Watershed in upstate New York, in the Catskill Mountains and Hudson River Valley regions. The New York City Watershed… systems are owned by the Catskill Watershed Corporation. The watershed has two separate systems: the Catskill/Delaware Watershed, which provides 90% of New York City's water, and the Croton Watershed, which provides the remaining 10%. Since New York City is at sea level, and the Catskill Mountains are upstate, the city doesn't have to do very much to get the water here: it basically just flows downhill from upstate springs, straight to the city. This is why New York City tap water is among the best tap water of any city in the world. In fact, New York City is one of only four major U.S. cities that has tap water so pure, it does not need to be purifed by a water treatment plant.
About 412, according to the directory of Public High Schools from 2011-2012.
For starters a few would be: Cravath, Swaine & Moore LLP Boies, Schiller & Flexner LLP White & Case LLP Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom
Stuyvesant, Bronx Science, Brooklyn Tech, Beacon, and LaGuardia are some of the city's top public high schools.
21 years old and it is currently 21. For a period of time in the 70's the age was dropped to 18.
New York City has no curfew law. Curfew laws have been proposed, but nothing has come of it. And given that the New York State Court of Appeals has recently ruled that teen cu…rfew laws are unconstitutional (see second Related Link), it is unlikely that one will be passed anytime soon.
Twenty-one is the legal drinking age everywhere in the United States.
The largest law firm in New York City, according to the Internet Legal Research Group, is White & Case, with 1,983 attorneys on staff.

I have had a lot of experience with this, as I owned properties that participated in government programs. First, one must understand the type of housing. In general, the apart…ments that receive subsidies individually are less attractive than buildings that are contracted as a whole. Newer buildings are generally much nicer as the developers in recent years have been given greater incentives by the city to make better housing. The following is a list, in my opinion of apartment quality based on it's status: Built after 1998, HPD Contracted: Excellent Condition General HPD Contracts, pre 1998: Good Conditions Housing Stability Plus Program (HSP): Below Average Section 8 Voucher Units, pre 1998 construction: Terrible Be wary of the tenants in the building as well. If you see that they are constantly fighting with landlords, or they keep their apartments in poor condition, it is very likely that it will spill into your apartment. Look for evidence of rat traps or poison. Also bed bugs. If any apartment has bed bugs, most of the other units are at risk. Look to make sure the areas around the building are clean as well. To find violations on the building in advance, you can look directly at the nyc hpd website at the following link: http://www.nyc.gov/html/hpd/html/home/home.shtml Just enter the address and borough, and you will see the violations of the building.

CUNY in Queens is the cheapest. it is 16k out of state and about 9k instate. Cheap is relative though. If you get a scholarship your law school expense can be just as cheap …at a better school
It may be okay to drink from a New York City fire hydrant, but it is not advised. Sometimes hydrants are repaired with old parts or parts that contain lead, which is toxic.
The Statue of Liberty is not in New Jersey. This is misinformation. New York and New Jersey share jurisdiction over the island. Although the island is on the New Jersey side o…f the state line, the part that lies above sea level belongs to New York, while the part that is submerged belongs to New Jersey. See the Related Link below for more information about the controversy between New York and New Jersey over Liberty Island. People consider the Statue of Liberty to be part of New York City because 1) the statue itself is (for obvious reasons) located on the part of Liberty Island that is above sea level, ergo, the statue is in New York City, or 2) they are simply unaware that New Jersey owns the submerged portion.
