According to a spokesman for the Port Authority, which oversees most of the ports, bridges, airports, and tunnels in the area, those shooting commercial photographs or video must apprise the authority in advance of their intentions. That means commercial photographs, taken by companies. Individuals do not have the same restriction – and the policies are not related to terrorism.
_____________
“Citizens are allowed to engage in photography at all Port Authority venues unless it’s a secure or off-limits location.” – Port Authority Spokesman Joe Pentangelo
____________
“Sometimes equipment is intrusive, and the Port Authority would like to know where those companies are, so that passenger movement is not put into any kind of danger or delay by that,” said spokesman Joe Pentangelo.

The guidelines don’t apply to the general public.

“For civilians, people who are just taking a photograph, that does not apply,” Pentangelo said. “Citizens are allowed to engage in photography at all Port Authority venues unless it’s a secure or off-limits location.”

Port Authority Police has very limited jurisdiction (ports, airports, bridges, tunnels, PATH) and they have to justify their existence. So I wouldn't be too surprised if they are detaining, interrogating and/or arresting people for something that is not a crime.

They never bother me at the Airport or Ports , then again they are too busy sleeping or looking at porn on the laptops... They often seem very bored....which indicts maybe there's too many cops...

The National Guard who are stationed in certain Subway stations usually can seen playing Hacky Sack during the off peak hrs. They often are in groups of 6 , and not from the area which is often a problem if you have travel related question.

I still get chased by station employees in the red coats at every station that they show up at, with the sole exception of Harrison. They are really a pain in the new Hoboken bound side of the WTC station, removing all photographers until they get up the escalator to the mezzanine.

RARE view of the PATH station under the World Trade Center looking very 1960s modern with its overhead panels and recessed lighting. New York. 1979

Aside from Newark and Harrison (built 1930s), 33rd St (rebuilt 1930s), and World Trade Center, almost everything on PATH is original to pre-WWI.
