    None of the above. You do not put any wiring under the siding.

    This post is a joke, right?
    As Philip mentioned, don't install any of it under the vinyl siding. Install inside of walls or surface mount using approved materials. If a guy tells you its Ok to put electrical under vinyl siding, ask to see his electrical license.

    As the others have said: put the wiring IN the wall, and to continue with that idea ... NM cable (RomexTM is just one brand of NM cable) *IS NOT* allowed to be used outdoors, not even if in conduit.

    The NM cable would need to end in an interior junction box and a wiring method approved for use outdoors would then need to be connected to the NM cable and run outdoors.

    In re: "What to use under vinyl siding romex simplull, BX, Conduitit +NYC Code?"

    What to use? A NYC licensed Electrical Contractor and a valid permit.

    NYC doesn't allow electrical installation by anyone else.
