Deputy Commissioner, Public Information

New York, N.Y. 10038

Dear Deputy Police Commissioner Browne,

On Friday, October 23, about 2 p.m., I arrived at City Hall to videotape footage of the front of City Hall for a student journalism project and was told by the officer operating the screening machine that I couldn’t pass through because “they” didn’t want anyone to videotape the building. So, I am writing to learn what are the guidelines. This was not my first time at City Hall to take pictures and/or videotape, so I would like to know if there are have been any changes.
