See my comments replying to your prior post. Even if the roof garden violates the building code, if
it is a required service, it is the landlord who is required to correct the violation.

Nothing (including flower pots) is permitted on any fire escape or the four foot width
of a required fire egress. I guess that the theory is that if there is a fire, it
may be dark and people rushing to escape may trip or in some way be hindered from
evacuating a building.

If the wrong section number is cited on a violation notice, the violation must be dismissed,
although a new, properly completed violation notice could be issued and served.
