The NYC Code references NFPA 13R. Does it mean I bought the wrong NFPA Reference Code?
if you are to comply with NFPA 13 R , you need that standard
also get the correct year edition
what are you building, how many stories???
Depends on your project. In NYC, 13R applies to residential buildings up to and including 6 stories in height (low rise hotel, dormitory, etc.) The 2007 edition is adopted in NYC. As with all adopted NFPA standards, NYC Building Code has modifications to the standards specific to NYC/FDNY requirements. Those can be found in Appendix Q of the 2014 Building Code (Section BC Q104).

The Residential section of NFPA 13 is NOT the same as NFPA 13R. 13R may only be applied to low rise residential occupied buildings, generally 4 story or less of residential occupancy and never more than 60' tall buildings.
