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".

Answer . Sidewalks in any city are public property and up to the City to repair them. However, during winter it is usually up to the store owner to keep the sidewalk to the… front of their store clean of ice and snow.. In New York City, it is the obligation of the property owner abutting the sidewalk to install, maintain and repair the sidewalk. This is true for all property owners expect railroads and cemeteries. The first are excluded from this law by the Railroad Law, and the second by the Real Estate Law. The Department of Transportation will inspect a sidewalk anywhere within the five boroughs and issue a "Notice of Violation" [NOV] if there is a fault in the sidewalk. If the sidewalk is adjacent to a one- to three-family house, the City's Department of Transportation contractor wil repair the sidewalk and charge the property owner by adding the cost of the repairs to the property owner's tax bill. For more than four-family residences or commercial properties, while the department of Transportation will issue the NOV, but repairs are the duty of the property owner. This information stems from the NYC Administrative Code, Section 7-210. If a sidewalk "flag" has been lifted by a tree, the Department of Parks and Recreation has a program that will repair that flag free of charge. Property owners with such a problem should call the city's information number: 3-1-1 and tell the operator that a tree has lifted the flag in question.

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.
Not sure of your question but yes, NYC has the largest public transit system in the U.S. and is one of the largest in the world. The subway has 468 stations, over 6,000 subw…ay cars, over 700 miles of track. Over 6 million people ride the system daily. It also has one of the largest bus fleets in the country (I don't have those exact numbers). The PATH system (NY/NJ) serves lower and Midtown Manhattan connecting to Hoboken, Jersey City, Harrison and Newark NJ. In addition, there is also 2 railroad hubs serving many different rail lines(Grand Central - MetroNorth and soon LIRR, Penn Station - LIRR, NJ Transit and Amtrak).

Yes. The PATH train stops in Hoboken. The PATH train connects Jersey City, Hoboken, Harrison and Newark to Manhattan. The PATH train also connects to the A-C-E (the blue New Y…ork City subway line) in Manhattan.
Stuyvesant, Bronx Science, Brooklyn Tech, Beacon, and LaGuardia are some of the city's top public high schools.
No, but urinating on someone is.
Stuyvesant is undoubtedly the best public high school in New York City. It is also one of the best public high schools in the United States.
There is a salary criteria you must meet. Go to NYC.GOV and look up housing and a complete description will inform you of the requirements. Please see the link below--it cont…ains most of the information you will need.

NYC offers the New York city buses, Long Island buses, the subway, Long Island Railroad, Metro-North Railroad, Staten Island Railroad, and several bridges and tunnels.
There is no one person in charge of all public events in New York City. Many events are put on by different companies and agencies, and they are responsible for running the e…vent themselves. However, all events must be approved by the city and permits granted. These are processed through the Department of Parks and Recreation.
