Default Bars on Bedroom Windows

I live in a two bedroom apartment in Queens. There are bars without releases on both windows in each of the bedrooms. There is a window in the living room without bars. Is it legal to have burglar bars without releases on the bedroom windows?

On a fire escape window you must have releases meaning the bars have to be in the form of a gate that can be opened during an emergency. I don't know about the other windows.

Like Chava61 says. FDNY approved gates are allowed on fire escape windows. Any other windows can have any kind of inoperable gates and/or bars.
