Seven days after the tragedy that devastated New York, the city has begun to resume normal operations and will begin to once again issue lensing permits to film crews wanting to shoot in the Big Apple, according to Variety. All filming was summarily suspended on Tuesday when the twin towers of the World Trade Centre were razed to the ground in a horrific attack by terrorists. The New York mayor's office will once again begin to issue permits today as part of the city's attempt to resume normal operations. The main hindrance to filming in New York since the event has been the unavailability of police, many of whom have been needed to maintain order and lend assistance at the site of the attack. "The mayor wants all business back and running, and we think we can do it," stated Pat Scott, head of The Office of Theatre, Film and Broadcasting. "By the time productions such as Men in Black 2, Spider-man and Stuart Little 2 come back to the city, we'll be ready for them."
