Yeah, I tried to take pics the last time I was in NYC, and I was warned about it.

Nice pics though!

Subway, LIRR, amtrak, everything is ok, just not PATH for photos. They have their legitimate reasons.

No need to be nasty. I don't agree with photo bans in public places. Certainly if you can snap a photo of an MTA train there's no reason why such a no-picture rule should exist on Path. Preventing future attacks will be done through good police work not harassing train-lovers wanting to snap a few photos.

100% agree, there is no reason for that on Path. On the net tehre are tons of pics, so if im planing something i dont need to get to the station and take pics, thousends of ppl already did it and posted here and else where. This rule is just stupid.

PATH is owned by the bi-state government agency Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, so it's not a "public place". MTA is a public entity chartered by the state of new york, so its holdings outside of restricted areas are a "public place". Even if they weren't they have several reasons to have the ban photography, even though people still take photos from time to time.

I'm sure they have "reasons" to ban photography, but that doesn't make them legit.

Let's post here all the pics that we all have in one place and show that it's stupid to ban the photography. I would like to see more pics here.

Yes, because lots of people doing banned activities is enough to not get people in trouble. Just like with file sharing at the turn of the century.

your allowed to take Photos at All Public Places , if you ask the Station Master and he says yes , you are allowed to, i doesn't hurt to ask! Your less likely to get harassed if you film on off peak hours , also there are a few papers you can show to them , stating that they they have a legal right to film in public places

I love the PATH's 'P' logo... reminds me of something from Batman.

There's a short video on the Path website regarding the new cars...

For the life of me I can't figure out how to embed the video, but it's here:

Has anyone ridden PATH in the middle of the night? I'm just curious how many people ride in the dead of night since it runs 24/7.

I have many times. Its pretty much people going home after a night out in New York. Typically drunk, but I never experienced any trouble. You usually have to wait about an hour or so around those times, and it can be a very tedious and sweaty wait. But its awesome.
