MTA Workers Harass Photographers, Make Stuff Up

Since when do MTA workers care what anyone does in the subway stations?

This past weekend, a group of transit workers at the 9th Avenue station in Brooklyn harassed photographer Maki Isayama, telling him he wasn’t allowed to take photos because…well, “you’re not allowed.” When Isayama protested, another worker said he would have to confiscate his camera and erase the images.

But it wasn’t an isolated incident! Another photographer encountered a similiar situation last week when he took this photo in the subway and an MTA worker threatened to confiscate his camera.

Wait – I’m confused. Don’t MTA guidelines clearly state that photos are allowed in the subway?
