The Economic Times recently wrote about the use of drones in New York City. Drones have become increasingly popular in the city and this has caused problems. Among them, a drone flying in Upper Manhattan came within 800 feet of a New York Police Department helicopter near the George Washington Bridge. Also, the Federal Aviation Administration opened an investigation into whether a drone used by the photographer at the wedding of Rep. Sean Patrick broke rules on airspace restrictions. Currently, there are no specific regulations for local enforcement of drones in the city, though change seems to be on the horizon.
