I've noticed that the NFPA created a National Electrical Code for The City of New York, based on the 2002 NEC.

I've contacted the NFPA and N.Y.C. Buildings Department, but to no avail, no returned emails.

What I wanted to know, is if anyone knows if the NFPA created a N.Y.C. book based on the 2005 NEC, or if anyone works in the N.Y.C. area and knows about it.

Thank you.

but based on the 2005 NEC.

There is no compiled NYC electric Code that I know of. The NYC electric code involves you having to have a copy of the 2002 NEC and the list of amendments in Local Law 81.
