Well we just heard about the case in California where a home study group was fined $300 with $500 more fines if they don’t stop and get the unobtainable permit.
Can NY be much different?
I will in no way defend that local statute in California which prohibits Bible or such study groups and you cannot compare what is local law in California to what may occur in NYC.
The bottom line is that the Constitution does not specify which people may or may not be able to exercise property rights.
And I don’t think any of us want to live in a country where local, state or government officials dictate who can and cannot build on their property.
