I kept looking for any information related to photography permit in NYC area but I can not find clear answers. Putting a light stand is def require a permit but am I allow to use an assistance for holding Off Camera Flash equipment? Is she/he can hold it on the ground while the light stand is connected to OCF? Which area is illegal or prohibited? And more. I would like to contact someone about this but I found no one so far. Most information was related to video, not photography. I want to know specific information for NYC, Queens, Brooklyn, and public parks. I already checked NYC gov and individual parks but still not clear. Whom should I speak about photography permit? I dont want websites to read information cause I already did but I found very limited information.
