Snowfall Clearance Requirements in NYC

New York City just had its fourth noreaster in just a few weeks, meaning that snow is likely to pile up on city streets once again. When snow is left unattended on a sidewalk or roadway, pedestrians can slip and fall, which may result in serious injuries. New York City requires that snow is removed from sidewalks within a certain window of time after the weather event has passed. If a property owner fails to clear their sidewalks within the following timeframes, they may be issued a summons by the city.

  • If it stops snowing between 7:00 AM and 4:59 PM, property owners must clear sidewalks within 4 hours
  • If it stops snowing between 5:00 PM and 8:59 PM, property owners must clear sidewalks within 14 hours
  • If it stops snowing between 9 PM and 6:59 AM, property owners must clear sidewalks by 11 AM

It is also important to note that an individual can make a complaint about icy or snowy sidewalks in front of other people’s private property as well as public property such as school grounds, park paths, MTA facilities, bus stop shelters, in front of post offices, and streets.

Property owners are given ample time to clear their property after a snow or ice incident. If you were injured on another person’s property, contact our firm today.
