Before I moved to Florida I Boycotted all NYS permits Just to keep my money out of Cuomo's filthy coffers. I recommend Ya'll do the same. Just my humble opinion.

I never knew they had a surfing permit.. is that new?
Metal-detector permit? Surfing Permit? when are they going to introduce a tanning permit, swimming permit, etc. for everything else people normally DO on a beach/in a park - bad enough having to PAY to get into the parks. (or buy the park permit...)

Anything to squeeze another nickel out of us.

"The New York State Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation is pleased to announce that the following permits will be on sale for the upcoming 2014 season beginning on January 1, 2014."

Of course they "are pleased to announce" it. More money for them, less for us.

Hold the line on taxes, increase/create fees. Way to go Andrew!
