Check out this link  Reference Standard 10 lists all applicable national standards for the current code.  
In June of this year, NYC is scheduled to update their building code - their version of the IBC
Good Luck.

Subject: NYC building Code and AISC 13th edition

We are doing some structural steel connection design for a project in NYC and the EOR wants us to use the 9th edition AISC.  The reasoning he gives is this:
The New York city code does not recognize the 13th edition for ASD, all connection design needs to be done to AISC ASD 335-89s1 (i.e 9th edition)

I find this difficult to believe.  Can any of you tell me if this is true?

Thanks for your help,

Best regards,
