Yet again: photography is not a crime. Not when NewYorkology editor Amy Langfield tries to take a picture of a building from a public street, and not when art teacher Katherin McInnis tries to shoot video from a public sidewalk. (Memo to the cop in that latter story: implying that someone's assumed political position is what led to police attention and harassment is, I'd imagine, a very good way to get yourself named as the respondent in a First Amendment lawsuit.)
So this afternoon at 3pm, I'll be out at Atlantic Yards, taking pictures and exercising my First Amendment rights. Hope to see you there.
