What is the vertical limit on NYC's Central Park smoking ban?

Asked by SecondHandStoke (9507points) June 7th, 2014

If I had the means to hover above the park at what altitude would I be in compliance?

Please feel free to levitate above everyone’s head and smoke a cigarette.

Your self righteousness.

It must feel sooo good.

^^^ Didn’t you quote, in another thread, a belief that there’s a correlation between meat consumption and sense of humor? I guess you’ve been vegan since birth.

Generally, FAA requires 1,000 feet above structures in congested areas within 2,000 feet horizontal, and as there are tall buildings all around Central Park, you’d probably have to be about 2,000 ft. altitude.

If it’s really good weed, you can get that high.

@SadieMartinPaul Going a couple of hours without a smoke shuts off one’s sense of humor too. When I need a smoke, I am a bit bitchy. So @SecondHandStoke probably just needs a smoke before he can see the humor in anything.

Our nannystate culture is no laughing matter.

Though I do find myself cracking up or making a joke over it’s sheer stupidity.

GA @zenvelo Because it’s funny and I can see that.

Points for effort @SadieMartinPaul

Oh I’m no vegan, besides true veganism is simply not possible.

Do you really need a cigarette that badly?

@Darth_Algar Spoken like a true non-smoker :/

Eh, more like someone who’s smoked for 18 years now.

No, I don’t need a cigarette that badly. For me it is a lavish indulgence, not a joyless addiction.

So you’re a former smoker that want’s others choices taken from them to remove temptation for you.

What I DO need is if the war on cigarettes is going to continue there needs to be some restrictions on cheap cologne, babies wailing in restaurants, crappy pop music, pseudo craft beer, fake Rolexes and other soulless things that offend my sensitive constitution.

Sweet fucking Christ. What is it with folks on this board jumping to conclusions, making groundless assumptions and paying poor attention to what others are saying?


Please point out where I said anything about taking cigarettes away from anyone.

Also note – I said “who’s smoked for 18 years now”. “Now” indicating present tense. As in I am a smoker, now. Currently. In the present. Not as in I used to be a smoker in the past.
