I wonder if they weren't concerned about other things...
Random dude, set up with a tripod and a long lens, peering into the city...
Combined with the general paranoia of people...

Whatever the reason, it's terribly unfortunate.

There was 3 of us. I would have thought they didn't want someone tripping on my tripods and suing the park. Nope, they said we needed a permit or no tripods.

I know of at least two places here that require permits for photography, but that's due to the spots being popular for wedding photos. They're popular enough spots that I'm pretty sure they would be constantly packed if permits weren't required. Nobody would ever be able to use the locations for "recreation"...

What bullshit. What park is that where no tripods are allowed without a bribe fee? Central Park. I can understand if its a professional shoot with a lot of equipment and people, to pay a fee. Thats bad enough. But just a single schmuk with his camera and tripod wanting to take pano pics or HDR shouldnt have to pay to shoot. America, land of the free my ass.

An outstanding scene, from an outstanding film, that touches on the "business" of modern society... \
It's the closing scene to "Killing Them Softly", but isn't really a plot spoiler...
