..575-578 By section 41 of the Greater New York Charter (L. 1897, chap. 378), all ordinances of the local boroughs in the City of New York, when not inconsistent with the charter, were continued in force. But the Board of Aldermen was given full power and authority to pass ordinances governing all the boroughs by sections 42, 44, 49, 50 and 51, and to modify, amend or repeal any ordinances of the local boroughs. This code repeals all special and village laws heretofore still in force in the Greater New York and makes all ordinances general throughout the city. These general powers were continued by the revision of 1901 (L. 1901, chap. 466). The revised charter (sec. 57) requires an annual compilation by the Board of Aldermen on January first of the general ordinances in force. It is in pursuance of this section this code was prepared.
