This prohibition applies to all weapons as defined in the New York State Penal Law, and extends to all employees, parties, witnesses and visitors appearing on Board premises.
As a reminder, all visitors entering Board premises, along with their bags, briefcases, or other packages, are subject to search. Persons who do not submit to a search will not be permitted access and may be asked to leave the premises
