new intercom/lock law

Posted by alice on January 25, 2000 at 23:28:09:

I have to ask again: I have that flu and no intercom: neither the drugstore nor the deli could deliver today. I really really need a working intercom and finding out what this law is and forcing the building to comply is my last hope.

Last summer, there was a flurry of activity in my neighborhood. all
non-24-hour-doorman-buildings were getting new intercom units installed to the very
outermost part of the buildings thereby putting the mailboxes behind a locked door
(the mailcarriers have keys to the new units). 'all buildings' = apartment houses and
brownstones, except mine and about 3 others. the mailcarrier said it was to comply to
a new law: said it was both a NYC law and a federal law. I've searched both and (and here and, of course): nada, nothing,
no luck.

anyone out there know what it is and esp where to find it, preferably online?

ps: my building's 38-year-old intercom works in maybe 50% of the apts and only then
about 50% of the time. the building management is hopeless. the last time HPD
violated the old one, they fixed it. the fix lasted less than a week...
