Hey Masood,
It really depends on the asset in question.

The calculations to assert the economic life of an asset deals with a lot of things, like the amount of time the asset can be used in production and its replacement cost. Not to mention that in big cities like New York, regulations change a lot, and that can also add weight in the economic life of it. So we suggest you talk with a real estate agent and even a real estate lawyer to help figure out your NY asset's specific economic life.
