This is key:

https://mobile.nytimes.com/2017/01/12/nyregion/brooklyn-utility-national-grid-meter-scheme.html

"Inspectors with National Grid and the cityís Buildings Department checked the 33 locations involved in the investigation and concluded that the publicís safety was not at risk."

Basically all they did was try to expedite the criminally negligent city bureaucracy.
By breaking the law

Anyone know the smallest thing about construction knows how awful the national grid thing is.  They always come 6 months late.  Hopefully this will bring some attention to this issue
That's the cost of doing business in NYC.

Judge jury and executioner. Have you ever done business to know what the cost of doing business is or should be in NY?
Fair warning - Any PMs sent in response to forum posts are fair game for ridicule in public.

I'm not saying it should be this way.  I'm just saying it is this way and they knew that before they purchased/built apt in NYC

Nobody counts on being delayed because of red tape bureaucratic nonsense. There is a reasonable expectation that the city will cooperate.

But they knew in advance it takes months.  It does for everyone and has been for a long time.

You obviously are not aware that there is other times you need a meter installation...

Did "they" also know this before they had the issue ??

Gas leaks, low hanging pipes, old meters etc...

I understand.  I wasn't taking specifically about this issue.  Everything in NYC takes time and during construction its expected that issues will arise.

National grid and con ed will be very quick to lock/remove a meter. However, to get it back on takes a super long time.

No one is expecting that. When theres a naive tenant that thinks they smell gas and they call utility company (because thats what they hear theyre supposed to do) next thing they know they are without gas with no hope in turning back on for a long time...
