In NY there are NYP Plates which allow you to park in designated NYP zones. NYP Plates are issued by NY, NJ and CT (I actually had the only NYP issued in VT when I lived there). NYP zones are not good for PA's PP plates, MA's News Photog plates or CT's CNP plates. I have NYP plates now from CT, and still have had some problems because some parking (traffic) enforcement officers do not know other states issue the NYP Plates

You can also get an NYPD Working Press Vehicle placard, but I don't believe they will issue them on a temp basis. You need a permenant Working Press ID issued by the NYPD.

NYC Parking will tow you if you try an NYP zone with a Non-NYP plate or NYPD Press Vehicle placard. Pating for parking is the best route.

->> If you drive into NYC with out of state plates, and get ticketed in a "No Standing" or "Truck Loading Zone" (where NYP working press vehicles can actually park for a reasonable amount of time, besides the NYP zones, you'll surely be towed.) The "Brownies" known as NYC parking Violations Bureau officers will actually call a tow truck on their radios and you're toast. I've actually still gotten ticketed and I HAVE NYP plates! My advice, expense it and put it in a lot.
