Bklink: You Can’t Photograph That, Continued

March 31st, 2008 · No Comments

Another week, another tale of a photographer and/or blogger being told by someone on a public street not to take photos. (It happened to us on Friday on Beard Street in Red Hook via a private security guard who stopped his car and said, “You can’t take any pictures here. Don’t take any pictures.”) We digress, however. “McBrooklyn was standing on the sidewalk on the north side of Willoughby Street (near the corner of Duffield/Oratory Place) in Downtown Brooklyn, taking a photo of the new Sheraton hotel going up on Duffield…A uniformed guard told us to stop taking pictures of the hotel — because photography was not allowed on the sidewalk in front of his Willoughby Street building.”–McBrooklyn
