My understanding is that this rule only applies for time periods longer than
ten minutes or so, correct? If you're there under a few minutes, no problem.
In some ways, this is better than other cities. Try suburban L.A-- any time
you whip out a camera, people go ape. It's like you're a combined terrorist
child molester. Everybody calls the cops nowadays. At least with the NY rules,
you have some leeway.
I don't see much of a difference here- it's always been the case in L.A.
that the minute a group shows up, especially with a tripod, you need a
permit.....The NY rules actually seem to be a loosening of the general rules
elsewhere, IMO.
