    "Bridges and Tunnels

    The Port Authority operates the George Washington, Goethals and Bayonne bridges; the Outerbridge Crossing; and the Lincoln and Holland tunnels. Videotaping and photographing at toll plazas at any of these facilities is prohibited, and the Port Authority reserves the right to restrict videotaping and photography to designated areas at all of its bridges and tunnels.

    For access to these areas, approval must be received in advance from the Media Relations Unit, 212 435-7777, during regular business hours."

      the middle of the bridge, not a toll plaza.

      Photography is NOT prohibited on the bridge.

      The cop was wrong.

      Not to mention how patently absurd the attempted enforcement of a such a law in a densely crowded city. As if people unaware of the prohibition in the past haven't taken thousands of images from the bridge!

      Did the cop confiscate the camera, after seeing these potential TERRORISTS snap away?

      NO, he just told them to stop. So they "got away" with the goods. It's ridiculous.
