A very jovial Brooklyn city inspector arrived well within the window of time I was given today. He checked out the offending staircase, and indeed there were major violations as far as the strength of the ramp, and its tendency to bounce when ascending or descending. He also noted the excessive risers on the lower staircase (each riser cannot exceed 8 and 1/4 inches), which had obviously been an existing condition, but nonetheless, the LL is still responsible for bringing this up to code.
In addition, after inquiring how many units the building had (3), a big smile broke out across his face. He pointed out at least 4 additional violations he spied in the hallway. I joked about how many violations he would find if he actually entered my dwelling, which I wasn't ready to deal with on this day, and he replied, "Don't worry. I'm only checking for what was on the original complaint today."
