We are planning a trip to NYC in mid-March. I have seen many beautiful night photos of the park on this forum and elsewhere. I am wondering if there are any rules or regulations on photography in the park. I looked online and there is a form to fill out for filming and photography events. I am a little confused since I think that is for professional photographers. Any restrictions on amateurs/tourists (e.g. tripod/monopod use)? Also any safety issues at night? My impression is the park is relatively crowded even at night.

Don't worry about it.

The thing to be aware of would be NOT to block pedestrian traffic, staircases, doorways, etc.. Just stay out of the way and no one will bother you.

I often carry a monopod which is even less intrusive, or use my tripod one-legged.
