: : Kathleen asked: I live in a rent stabilized walk-up tenement in the West Village, NYC. Probably a 1920's, 20-unit building. ... [W]e do not have an intercom - just buzzers. Are they grandfathered on this?

: : Anna replied: No.


: : Intercom systems are not required in buildings completed before January 1, 1968. Bell-buzzer systems are permitted in older buildings, but a majority of the tenants can demand -- and pay a rent increase for -- an intercom system [Multiple Dwelling Law 50-a].

The correct answer is YES. That is why I corrected Anna. And I will post new messages and reply to old messages as I choose.
