"Built Dam Strong!"

03 October 2014

Reason number eleventybillion and five why I need to GTFO of NYC.

In NYC, it is illegal for homeowners to do any electrical work to their own home. Any. Need to change a light switch? Want to add an outlet? Install some new lights? Nope. You are allowed to plug in cords and replace light bulbs.

You can't even get an electrical work permit and then have said work inspected unless you are a licensed electrician.

Ok, I get it. A lot of people shouldn't do wiring. A lot of people shouldn't ever touch tools. A lot of people are better off fingering their smart phones and never doing anything else.

BUT . . . Holy poop! That's really intrusive. New Jersey isn't even that draconian!

I'm just filling this away as motivation to GTFO.
