If I want to take pictures or video in Grand Central, will I need a permit?

September 16, 2017

Anyone is free to take pictures or video inside Grand Central. However, if you will be using professional equipment like a tripod or if you will be using the content for commercial purposes, you will need to get a permit through Metro-North’s Corporate & Public Affairs Department. Please use this form to contact them at least one week in advance of the date you wish to shoot, or more, depending on the scope of your request.

There may be additional licensing and fee requirements if you will be using the resulting photos or videos for commercial purposes.

Post your pictures of the Terminal on social media. Use #ShareGCT, and we may choose to share your picture on Instagram!
