one reason the bigger, older cities have tougher laws is due to fire hazard.
buildings are so close that it's easier for a large fire to consume many buildings.
And as much as people might assume it was unions (electrical, plumbing, etc)
that got these rules passed it was more often insurance companies.
Note also that home improvement centers (Home Depot, Lowes, etc)
in most localities are free to sell products that do not meet local codes.

btw- i made sure my ups for the i5 & pc's handles a "sag" (many only handle outage, or surge and outage). Large power items in my house can cause a sag... I've been told my house, built in 1962 would not meet todays code (not the roof, electrical or plumbing) I had to get a rider on my home insurance so if house damaged, major repair(needing a permit) would have to bring house up to current code.

NYC  requires conduit  or thin wall for outside the walls/ceiling
and  BX in the  walls and  ceilings.
I  caught Sh*t for  running romex cable in conduit pipe, and  had to
remove it all.

While I have use romex on L.I.  and in Illinois I was  shocked  at
NYC law not allowing this even in pipe.

John, remind me never to move where you live! Your code requires normal
120V wires to be in conduit? Ouch!
