Therefore, pleading guilty to a open container law in New York City would appear on a background check?

Yes, it would.

Even though this is considered the equivalent to a parking ticket
Expert:  Roger replied 6 years ago.

Yes, it will appear on your record; traffic citations do as well.

 

However, many employers only check for or ask about felony convictions.
