    Maybe Zoning is the correct culprit, depending on how their charter is written. And also how much authority they have. The article talkes about a large number of abandoned buildings that are in disrepair. Does that fall on zoning? Or the inspection office? And then how do you enforce cleanup when the owner is an LLC? How much time and resources do you expend on the abandoned house when you could better use the time to falsify records and accept bribes (read the article).

    Does NY have a state wide Property Maintenance Code? If not why is the state involved?

    "Never" be amazed by what we "see" and "what" others "chose" to do.
