Fire escape removal?

Hi there,

Has anyone had any luck petitioning the city to let them take down an old fire escape? We own a three family with two fire escapes, and they’re both falling apart and practically hanging off the building. I know in NYC you have to install a sprinkler in the inner staircase for egress in order to remove a fire escape legally. Not sure if the same rule applies in Newburgh?

Thanks

I’ve never heard of any success, it’s kind of why you probably see them on every other building in Newburgh.
