    Do you ride them in the street or on the pavement? Are they legal altogether?

    Just checked the definitions article in the Vehicle and Traffic laws. They aren’t defined as Bicycles, In-line skates, Roller skates, Skate boards, or Vehicles so I don’t know what laws would apply to them.

    What exactly is a Kick scooter? Does it have an engine or is it just propelled by your foot? I have only seen them on the sidewalk but it doesn’t mean they are legal as I have seen motorized bike on the sidewalk and I know they are illegal. As long as you are not bumping into people I don’t think the cops will bother you. In the street I think it’s too dangerous.

    How about drones and toy helicopters? Are they allowed to be flown anywhere?

    Not in controlled airspace or within 5 miles of an airport. The term “airport” includes any helipads.

    I think the only points on NYC are parts of Riverdale (but not near schools or hospitals) and parts of Van Cortlandt Park.

    As long as you are flying them under 50 feet and not near airports hospitals or construction sites, I don’t think there should be a problem.
