Am I allowed to have a barbecue grill on my apartment patio?

It is unlawful for a tenant, the management or an owner of an apartment house or any other person to use or allow or permit to be used a grill in an apartment house or within ten feet of any part of an apartment house or on or under any portion of the structure of an apartment house.
