Hi,  I'm new to this, so I don't know if anyone can help.  I live in Long Island, NY, and have a couple of neighbors that are just completely intolerable!  They really know how to make the block look trashy!  They have a motor home which is parked in the street, in front of their house (thank God!!), but it's a complete eyesore!  This thing has got to be from the late '70's - early '80's.  There is graffiti on it, and it has NEVER been used all this time.  It serves absolutely no purpose except aggrivate me.  On top of it, they live on a corner, and this house on wheels makes it impossible for cars to see if there is any traffic coming around the corner.  I am just waiting for a accident!  The icing on the cake is that they have an illegal apartment as well!  We've called the precint several times, and they said unfortunately it can be parked there, but it's not allowed after midnight.  So they came by a couple of nights, but for some strange reason they are not issuing tickets.  I have searched the internet for hours trying to find out just exactly what the law actually is, but I've had no luck.  Is there anyone in law enforcement out there who can give me a straight answer so justice can be served!!  Is this thing illegal or not? - Thank You

In NYS, if the vehicle is registered and everything up to par, and not obstructing traffic, it doesn't sound like there's anything illegal with the vehicle being parked on the street, other than parking overnight if that's what the local code is. As far as the illegal apartment, I'm not sure what you mean by it, but it's probably a Codes issue. What areas of laws are you looking for in NY? If you google "laws of NY" you shouuld come up with a website from the state legislature that you can see every law on.

Oh, you'll need to hit the lobby as well here and give an introduction on yourself  per the terms of use
