Starting February 24, 2018, smoking or using electronic cigarettes (e- cigarettes) will be prohibited in common areas of residential buildings with three or more dwelling units.
New York City recently passed a law (Local Law 141) prohibiting smoking or the use of e-cigarettes in common areas of private residences with three or more units. This law amends the City’s Smoke-Free Air Act, which currently states that smoking and using e-cigarettes in common areas of private residences with ten or more units is not allowed. Local Law 141 extends the City’s Smoke-Free Air Act to a greater number of private residences - specifically those that have between three and nine units. This law goes into effect on February 24. 2018.
As a result of this law, residential buildings with more than three dwelling units must post “NO SMOKING" and “NO ELECTRONIC CIGARETTE” signs.
These signs must be clearly visible to residents and should be posted in lobbies, and in other locations if needed, as required by the New York City Administrative Code §17-506 and the Rules of the City of New York, Title 24, §10-12. See the other side of this letter for more details on these requirements.
