    “Section 18, The section codifies the new criteria for Article 7-C coverage contained in § 281(6) of the Loft Law. The section eliminates the window requirement, eliminates the basement exclusion and limits the inherently incompatible use exclusion to uses in Use Group 18. ”

    These restrictions should not be removed without serious thought. In the case of an extreme weather event and flooding the height of the ceilings will determine a basements tenant’s timeline for escape. Similarly access to windows as emergency exits may mean the difference between life and death.
    During major flooding every second counts. Increasing the amount of people that will need to be rescued, evacuated or rehoused will also increase strain on emergency services in a crisis event.
