It does matter.  Manhattan is part of New York City; you'll have to take a look at the New York  _City_  Building Code.  The link is http://www.nyc.gov/html/dob/html/code.html

My understanding is that New York State law gives cities over a certain size the right to have their own building code. ----- Original Message ----- From: "Ken Peoples" Date: Wed, 25 Jun 2003 08:11:12 -0400 To: Subject: Re: NY State Building Code requirements

Tahir,
 
Thank you very much for your offer to fax information to me.  I will be purchasing the latest code, but I have been asked yesterday to provide reactions for a building design by the end of the day tomorrow.  The project is in Manhattan if that matters.  Could you please fax the wind load chapter to me at your earliest convenience?  My fax number is below.
 
Thank you very much.
 
Best regards,
 
Ken

KEN:
 
NY in 2003 has adopted a new code called BUILDING CODE OF NEW YORK STATE.   There are lot new requirements in the new code for wind loads etc.
 I can provide you the copy of Table or chapter by fax if you want.

I think that I remember a while back hearing that NY would be adopting the IBC 2000 sometime soon.  I have been asked to provide wind load reactions for a building in NY and am not sure whether I should be using the old NY code or the IBC.
 
Thanks in advance for your help.
 
Best regards,
 
Ken
