House numbers: New York State building code requires residents to provide emergency vehicles with house numbers that are at least 4 inches in height on the front of every residence. Numbers shall contrast their background.

Junked or Abandoned Vehicles: Any motor vehicles that are unregistered, missing components, or are in a physical condition that renders the vehicle inoperable.
