The New York City Department of Buildings

The New York City Department of Buildings website publishes information on job fairs for Architects and Engineers, Mobile Crane Licenses, safety regulations, the new maintenance logs requirements and a host of other topics of interest to consumers and professionals.

Did you know that the you can look up a building's certificate of occupancy here?

You can also find Operational Policy and Procedure Notices (OPPN), Technical Policy and Procedure Notices (TPPN), Administrative Policy and Procedure Notices (APPN), and Legal Policy and Procedure Notices (LPPN) here. To quote the Buildings Department, "These notices represent official policies of the Department of Buildings and assist our customers and employees in following operational, technical and legal procedures."

You may think you'd never have a reason to visit the Buildings Department, but I think you'd be pleasantly surprised if you did take a moment out of your day to check out all that this website has to offer.

Boy girl (?):-) you have a finger in every pie - you're like a whirling dervish!

Hey C ... Great link.  I looked up the building in Manhattan that my family owned (where I grew up).  Easy to find info.

Posted by Marie Meyer, Orange County New York Realtor (Keller Williams Realty) about 12 years ago

Thank you, Liz (LOL).

Marie, I'm glad you found it useful. I use their databases all of the time. It's pretty cool, especially if you don't know the block and lot number to a property but have an address.

You do not have an MLS in NYC, right?

Posted by Marie Meyer, Orange County New York Realtor (Keller Williams Realty) about 12 years ago

Marie, there are multiple MLS available in NYC. We use the MLSLI.com Stratus system. Very cool. I'm old school. O like going to the government sights and comparing what we have to what they have. If push comes to shove, the Gov site always wins in the end. :-)

Okay ... I had heard that Manhattan did not have one.

It's alway intersting to compare the gov't site with the MLS :)

Posted by Marie Meyer, Orange County New York Realtor (Keller Williams Realty) about 12 years ago

Manhattan has several. A couple are Manhattan/Bronx based.
