New York City has over 10,000 miles of sidewalks, making the sidewalk one of the most important exterior features of a building. Damaged sidewalks present trip hazards and act as eye sores for anyone approaching the property. Replacing or repairing a stained and damaged sidewalk can create a new, more positive image for the building as a whole.
Aesthetic appeal isn’t the only reason you should maintain your sidewalk. It’s also the law. According to the NYC Administrative Code, property owners are required to install, repair, and maintain sidewalks adjacent to their properties. You may also be liable for personal injuries resulting from a failure to maintain a reasonably safe sidewalk. The Department of Transportation regularly inspects New York City sidewalks, and issues citations to those buildings with sidewalks in need of repair.
