It is allowed, but it always has to be protected. This can be thru holes on joists or studs. If it is left exposed, it must be run in a protective conduit.

NYC electrical code prohibits the use of romex in any building. The only approved wiring method is MC, BX or conduit. NM or NMC cable is against electrical code.

Hope this helps you out. If you need further assistance with this question or just need further clarification - please don’t hesitate to ask.
