NEW NYC PERMIT RULES GO INTO EFFECT TODAY
The New York City Mayor’s Office of Film, Theatre and Broadcasting’s new permit rules for filmmakers go into effect today.
From the press release:
The rules, which were published today in the City Record and will go into effect thirty days after publication on August 13, will require a permit if filmmakers use vehicles or equipment, or, in certain situations, assert exclusive use of City property. Permits will not be required for casual photographers, tourists, credentialed members of the media, or other members of the public who do not use vehicles or equipment or assert exclusive use of City property.
