The Administrative Code of the City of New York contains the codified local laws of New York City.[1] As of January 2018, it contains 35 titles, numbered 1 through 16, 16-A, 17 through 20, 20-A, 21, 21-A, and 22 through 32.[2]

The Constitution of New York enumerates the powers of local governments, such as the power to elect a legislative body and adopt local laws.[3][4] A local law has a status equivalent with a law enacted by the Legislature (subject to certain exceptions and restrictions[5]), and is superior to the older forms of municipal legislation such as ordinances, resolutions, rules and regulations.[6]
