  manner to obstruct the use of any fire hydrant, or to allow any snow  or
  ice to be thrown or piled upon or around the same, or to place, or allow
  to be placed, any material or thing in front thereof, from the curb line
  to  the  center  of  the  street and to within ten feet from either side
  thereof. All snow and ice accumulating in the street, within such space,
  shall be removed by  the  owner,  lessee,  or  tenant  of  the  premises

  ten  feet  from  either  side  of  a fire hydrant shall not apply to any
  newsstand which was first licensed by the department of consumer affairs

  the  person  who held the license for such newsstand on the first day of
  August, nineteen hundred ninety-one continues to  be  the  licensee  for
  such  newsstand;  provided,  however,  that  where a newsstand which was
  first licensed prior to  the  first  day  of  August,  nineteen  hundred
  seventy-nine  is  reconstructed  in its entirety or in substantial part,
  which reconstruction was commenced on or after the first day of  August,
  nineteen  hundred  ninety-one,  such  newsstand shall be subject to such
  requirement that no thing be placed within ten feet from either side  of
  a fire hydrant.
