Mayor Bloomberg gave his two cents about the possible photography-on-city-subways-and-buses ban that's being proposed by the MTA. During his weekly radio show, the mayor said:

"If somebody's there with a high-powered camera at the front of the train trying to photograph switches and signal boxes, maybe there is something going on. If there are some tourists and they want to have a picture of each other on the subway train, c'mon, get real!"

While Gothamist feels the Mayor is forgetting about his small, possibly inconsequential bloc of New Yorkers who vote AND take pictures on the subway, we're glad he's said this much, at least.
