I'm not exactly sure how to read my violation number. Can you help me understand what to look for?
ECB Violations are often 9 digits, but can also be written with a leading "0". For example "140265510" can also be written as "0140265510". ECB Violations often, but not always, end in a letter.
Sidewalk Violations are often written as a string of numbers and may be preceded by a letter indicating the borough in which the violation was issued. Borough codes for sidewalk violations are as follows:
M - Manhattan
X - Bronx
R - Staten Island
K - Brooklyn
Q - Queens
FDNY Violation Orders
FDNY Violation Orders almost always begin with the letter "E" and are usually followed by 6 numbers (e.g. E416502).
PVT Elevator Violations
PVT Elevator Violations may be referred to by the DOB in several different ways. Often, the last six numbers represent the unique violation number. For example, elevator violation 123456 may be referred to as V111406E9444/123456 or 9444/123456 or PVT123456 or simply as 123456. In each case, the final six numbers are what uniquely identify the violation.
