I am writing with great concern about the implications of the recently proposed regulations concerning the rights of filmmakers and photographers in New York City.

The impact on public space of the types of activities you propose to regulate are so minimal that requiring permits is an undue burden towards exercising first amendment rights.

Creative expression, artistic work, and spontaneous documentation have historically played a vital role in New York City's culture and economy, and they continue to do so. The ability for this work to be produced would be seriously impeded by the proposed regulations.

Please dismiss these regulations altogether, and hold a new public hearing so that the communities that will be most impacted have an opportunity to meaningfully input into the shaping of new and constructive policies.

Regards,
