Correction about the new law:
"New regulations drafted by the Mayor's Office of Film, Theatre and
Broadcasting would require a permit for any type of filming or photography that
involved "an interaction among two or more people at a single site for 30 or more
minutes." Permits would also be required for five or more people using a
tripod for more than 10 minutes."
Don't want to be contrary, but this is actually a good deal. In L.A. for
instance, you need a a permit for any filming. The NY law seems to allow filming
with a tripod for at least ten minutes. Try pulling a tripod out in L.A.,
especially with more than one or two people! I wish we had NY's deal here....
