“Any construction site in New York City, so long as it’s construction on a structure in New York state is subject to the construction laws whether it’s a two-story structure, being built in Brooklyn somewhere or a hundred story skyscraper in Manhattan. They are subject to the same legal requirements. So long as it’s a construction site, so long as there is a structure that’s being worked on, and so long as it’s not a one or two family dwelling.”
