NEW YORK -- Photography at the World Trade Center site, where thousands of curious New Yorkers and tourists have gathered with still and video cameras since the terrorist attacks, was banned by Mayor Rudolph Giuliani.

"No photographic equipment or video equipment may be brought into the area or used, except with the approval of the Police Commissioner," said a statement issued by the mayor's office on Tuesday.

The statement said that the ban was issued because the site is a crime scene and that cameras and video equipment could be seized. No one from the mayor's office was available early Wednesday to explain why the order wasn't issued earlier.

Small signs were posted around the Trade Center site late Tuesday, warning passers-by that they risk prosecution for a Class B misdemeanor for taking pictures or violating any of the order's other provisions, including no pedestrian or vehicular traffic or occupancy of buildings within site boundaries.

Officer Michael DiFrancisco, standing guard at a barricade, said the photo ban also was "out of respect for the families and all those concerned."

More than 6,300 people are missing and feared dead in the wreckage. Since the day after the Sept. 11 attack, no survivors have been pulled out -- only bodies and body parts.

Bill Homan, standing two blocks from the twisted metal and concrete, said he was going to take pictures anyway.

"That's a phenomenal picture," said Homan, 27, a Staten Island history teacher. "In 20 years I could say, `Yes, I've seen that. I have pictures from that day."'

There were no reports of seized equipment as of early Wednesday, police spokeswoman Sgt. Marian Messina said.
