Ok, fine I understand I am in NY and this is a 9-11 world and all but what a drag, I was just out in Midtown working on a project and the Police ended my night of shooting early. I have heard that there was some photo permit they were requiring now but I though that law didn't go through. I guess not, they are "redrafting" the rules they made. So, for now I need to fill out one of these. and now I waisted the night because I only go too locations shot. I hope this permit dosn't turn into a long drawn out process I it is relatively easy then I am fine with the red tape.
