While the tale of the NY Times photographer who was told by Time Warner Center security that she could not take pictures rang true for Gothamist, it is possible to take photographs at the Time Warner Center. Bluejake has done so on two occasions (1, 2). We feel the key is to go into the Time Warner Center with a distraction, say a louder fall guy/gal who is snapping happily away whom security will gravitate towards. In the mean time, you can take photographs while your companion is playing dumb, intentionally so or not, claiming ignorance, a school project, or OCD right to document every single event in life.
