Bye-bye to subway photography

Ban looms for subway shutterbugs

Transit officials are moving ahead with a planned ban on taking pictures, filming and videotaping in the subway system – saying it’s a necessary security measure in the post-9/11 world.

The article goes on to say that the MTA rejected a less-stringent measure that would have allowed most photography, while still banning shots of dispatchers’ towers, equipment rooms, and infrastructure such as tunnels and bridges.

A 45-day comment period on this measure ends Jan. 10.
