Do Out Of Towners Have To Check In For All-Star In NY?

I have been seeing a lot out there and its something that is not indigenous to the city of New York. I am seeing on instagram and what not, certain people are telling “out of towners to check in.” You probably already know that this came from the West Coast and I think later, places like Detroit. Trick Trick in the house! Anyway, this is weird to me, but apparently folks gotta pay “street tithes” in order to be safe out here. You think its just talk or cats might actually get pressed?
