Here's exactly what the web site says:

"Multiple dwellings which were built or converted to such use after January 1, 1968 must have automatic self-closing and self-locking doors at all entrances. These doors must be kept locked at all times -- except when an attendant is on duty.

If this type of building contains eight or more apartments it must also have a two-way voice intercom system from each apartment to the front door and tenants must be able to "buzz" open the entrance door for visitors.

Multiple dwellings built or converted to such use prior to January 1, 1968 also must have self-locking doors and a two-way intercom system if requested by a majority of the tenants. Landlords may recover from tenants the cost of providing this equipment. (Multiple Dwelling Law 50-a) "

The poster asked about a doorbell, not an intercom system. In my building there is an intercom and some residents have installed their own doorbells as well. Which is their right to do so; it doesn't take a majority vote of all tenants to install your own doorbell.

: landlord is responsible for door bell and he MUST install one for FREE go to the following web site and read it all
