Is it a public sidewalk on private property? Can't imagine why the city would do that otherwise

v/newyorkcity's city hall is now more like an overzealous tenants association. They're so redundant at this point that they're left expanding sensible legislation from prior council sessions to the point of inane laws whenever its members think doing so might make them look productive to the votership. I don't understand how ticketing vacant properties, seniors too broke or physically/mentally feeble to remove snow themselves solves the problem. Sure, it would be an ideal and friendly gesture for a nearby relative or neighbor to do it, but in the north east it can snow heavily fairly often during the winter months and not everyone has a working snow blower on hand to tackle that problem or a relative close by to help. There are a lot of retirees who've decided due to situation or circumstance not to head south for their retirement years and my grandmother was one of them.

I don't get why a city as big as NYC doesn't do their own removal. I'm sure you pay more than enough taxes. My city has tracked vehicles with a V plow. They make quick work of it.
