Petitioner filed suit under Article 78 to vacate decisions on nine Notices of Violation (NOV) file against them by the Department of Buildings. (DOB)  At issue was whether a single attempt at personal service following by “affixing” a notice was sufficient.  The court held that this was sufficient and that the New York City Charter ordinance 1049-a(d)(2)(b) is not as onerous as the CPLR requirements for service.  Read about this NYC Department of Buildings and Environmental Control Board (ECB) case here.
