Who is Responsible for Snow Removal in New York?
Generally speaking, New York City gives property owners or managers four hours to remove ice and snow from public sidewalks surrounding their properties after snow stops falling. Snow and ice removal must be done so as not to create a more dangerous condition such as piles of snow blocking a crosswalk.
