Think the Elevator in Your Building is the Worst in New York City? By Levine & Slavit PLLC on September 06, 2012

Maybe so, but can you brag that yours is one of the ten worst elevator offenders in New York City?  If you want to know, go to the website of the New York City Buildings Department, you can find a list of ten of the top offenders who will be pursued under the Department’s Elevator Enforcement Program.  The list is compiled using complaint data, violations, maintenance filings, and field inspection records.  Many of these type of reports are available online and may serve as a gauge of the safety of a building and potential for liability for an unsafe condition of the premises.
