(g) Any building, erection or place, including one- or two-family dwellings, wherein, within the period of one year prior to the commencement of an action under this chapter, there have occurred three or more violations of one or any combination of the provisions of penal law article 220, except for section 220.03; article 221, except for sections 221.05, 221.10, 221.15, 221.35, and 221.40; or article 225; or section 10-203 of this code; provided that at least one such violation was personally witnessed by a police or peace officer;
