If you haven't already heard about this, please read the following 

I urge everyone to make their opinion known on this matter. The article 
above has a link to the New York MTA authority. I am a native New 
Yorker and am not exactly thrilled by this idea. New York is a mecca 
for photographers world wide and this ban would seriously curtail an 
important cultural and artistic aspect of that wonderful city, besides
it being an attack on our first amendment rights.

Be polite and professional, but let them know how you feel.

And remember:

They that can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary 
safety deserve neither liberty nor safety. -Benjamin Franklin
