The annual NYC Holiday Permitting Embargo will commence on Thursday, November 15, 2018, and run through Wednesday, January 2, 2019, from 6:00 a.m. to 11:59 p.m. 

During this embargo period, all roadway, sidewalk, and DOT Plaza activities will be restricted, and no permits will be issued or honored by The City of New York, in the confines of the multiple and various embargoed areas.

Any permits issued prior to the date of this notice, for execution during this embargo period may be suspended for the period noted above, at the discretion of the Mayor’s Office and NYPD.

In certain situations, it may be possible to be granted a “Special Use Waiver.”  Requests for such waivers should only be requested and submitted for “critical reasons” for a specific project. There is a mandatory Waiver Review Filing Fee, which is required to be paid prior to a waiver being granted, or reviewed.

Prior to this embargo period, all necessary measures must be taken so that all roadways and sidewalks are in proper condition to allow for the expeditious and safe movement of vehicular, bicycle and pedestrian traffic.

Please note that this embargo applies to NYC DOT and NYC special event permits.

If you or your client are looking for large footprint, with a high visibility location where your experiential marketing event will not be affected by the holiday permit embargo, (including in the Times Square area), you’ve come to the right place.  But, space, dates and locations are severely limited.

Securing Permits for Successful Street Event Promoting Upcoming TV Movie

Posted on:

EventPermits recently partnered with marketing and PR agency Pop2Life Creative to coordinate a street event in Manhattan promoting the National Geographic Channel’s TV movie called “Killing Kennedy.” We handled logistics and coordination, including security which was provided by Marty Barnes Security. We also secured all necessary permits for the event, which occurred in two locations in Manhattan, including activity, generator and sound permits.

“Killing Kennedy” is a made-for-TV movie based on the book “Killing Kennedy: The End of Camelot” by Bill O’Reilly and Martin Dugard. One of many projects scheduled to commemorate the 50th anniversary of JFK’s assassination, the movie parallels the lives of President John F. Kennedy and his killer Lee Harvey Oswald, through that fateful day when the former president was assassinated. “Killing Kennedy” stars Rob Lowe as JFK, Ginnifer Goodwin as Jackie O, and Will Rothhaar as Oswald. It premiered on the National Geographic Channel on Sunday, November 10 with encore presentations airing on the channel regularly.

To promote the film, 1960s-era-styled popup newsstands stocked with replica newspapers and magazines from the time period appeared on the southwest corner of 33rd Street and 7th Avenue near Penn Station and Madison Square Garden on Tuesday, November 5. The newsstand then popped up at Columbus Circle on the north side between Broadway and Central Park West on Thursday, November 7.

We worked to coordinate brand ambassadors who were dressed in ‘60s-era clothing, staffed the newsstands, and handed out newspaper clippings and literature announcing Kennedy’s killing to passers-by. The newsstand featured the National Geographic Channel’s logo, plus promotional theatrical posters and included the hashtag #KillingKennedy. The hashtag trended worldwide on Twitter during the movie’s premiere, ranking among the top 10 for social mentions among all primetime cable programs airing Sunday night.
