Hi, I live in a dorm building in NYC. Theres a wide ledge that goes all the way around the 15th floor. Would it be against the law to occupy it, as in stand or sit there?

*I know this is a random question, but Im not really on any other forums so I figured Id ask here. thanks.

Considering that it's NYC, the answer is "probably." Father government wouldn't want you to get hurt.

Is your concern for "the law" the only thing preventing you from hanging out on the 15th floor ledge of your dorm?

It may be a very long (deep) ledge?

We got on the roof of our dorm a couple of times, which was built on a hill, so we were probably 20+ stories up. When some kids on the other side of the dorm saw us and reported us, the RAs were not very happy, but I don't think it was against the law per se. Except maybe a tresspassing law going beyond the "no entry" sign and picking the lock to get through.
