NYC Residential Electrical Code Questions

Question asked by brm on Jan 29, 2016

In NYC residential construction, 1) is it required that (GFI) power outlets in a bathroom be located on the face of the wall within a certain proximity to the sinks? Or are they permitted to be located within a cabinet or at the underside of a countertop?  2) Must convenience outlets in other spaces have a required height above the finished floor, or is there a range (btwn 9" - 16" AFF)? (Surely it's permitted to install a duplex outlet at counter or desk level height?!) And 3) is there an online address that the electrical code for NYC is made available for dummies (like me?)  Thanks -
