It is the intent of the legislature by the enactment of this chapter to recodify, without substantive change, the administrative code of the city of New York in effect immediately prior to the effective date of this chapter. The enactment of this code shall not be construed as validating, ratifying or conforming any provision hereof which was enacted by any local law of the city of New York, and incorporated within the prior administrative code of the city of New York and recodified in this code which the city was without authority to enact at the time of such enactment of such local law.

Section 1-103. Effect of local law.

This chapter shall not operate to deprive the local legislative body of the city of New York of the power to enact local laws in relation to any matter in respect to which such power would otherwise exist, nor shall it limit such power. If this power otherwise exists, any provision of this chapter may be superseded, supplemented or amended by local law in the same manner and to the same extent as such provisions could be superseded, supplemented or amended had this chapter not been enacted.

Section 1-104. Judicial notice.

Section 1-105. Separability.

If any clause, sentence, paragraph, section or part of the code shall be adjudged by any court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, such judgment shall not affect, impair or invalidate the remainder thereof, but shall be confined in its operation to the clause, sentence, paragraph, section, or part thereof directly involved in the controversy in which such judgment shall have been rendered.

Section 1-106. No failure of applicable statutes.

Any provision of any statute applicable to the city or any part thereof, now or hereafter enacted, imposing functions generally, specifically or by devolution, upon any agency, which is not identified in the city by the designation provided in such statute, shall be deemed to have imposed such functions upon any agency of the city or part thereof, to which has been transferred the functions of the designated agency or which exercises similar functions, or in the absence of such agency, upon the mayor.

Section 1-107. Pending actions and proceedings.

No action or proceeding, civil or criminal, pending at the time the code shall take effect, brought by or against the city or any agency or officer thereof, shall be affected or abated by the adoption of the code or by anything therein contained. All such actions and proceedings may be continued in full force and effect under the appropriate provisions of the code.

Section 1-108. Existing rights and remedies saved.

No existing right or remedy of any kind shall be lost or impaired by reason of this recodification.

Section 1-109. Enumeration of powers not restrictive.

The enumeration of specific powers by this code shall not operate to restrict the meaning of a general grant of power contained in this code or to exclude other powers comprehended in such general grant.

Section 1-110. No repeal by implication.

a. It is not intended by this code to repeal by implication any existing provision of law and no law shall be deemed repealed thereby unless expressly provided for herein.

b. No law hereafter enacted shall be construed to repeal any provision of this code by implication, but every such provision shall be deemed to be in full force and effect until specifically repealed or amended.
