Storage of petroleum
General Business (GBS) CHAPTER 20, ARTICLE 19
§ 302. Storage of petroleum. Crude petroleum, earth or rock oil, or
any of its products, shall not be kept on sale or stored in any place or
building within the corporate limits of any city in this state, except
in the city of New York, unless in detached and properly ventilated
warehouses, the exterior walls of which are stone, brick or iron,
specially adapted to that purpose, with raised sills at least two feet
high, or the ground floor of which is at least two feet below the level
of the street or adjoining land, so as to effectually prevent the
overflow of such substances beyond the premises where kept or stored.

No part of such warehouses shall be occupied as a dwelling, and if
less than fifty feet from any adjacent building, such warehouse must be
separated therefrom by a brick or stone wall at least ten feet in height
and sixteen inches thick.

None of such articles shall be allowed to remain on the sidewalk
beyond the front line of any building or in the street, a longer time
than is actually necessary for the storage, shipment or delivery of the
same, nor after sunset.
