A 2 pronged question:-

1. How do all the TV shows that film in NYC manage to secure access to the various locations? Is there a specific time that they're all allowed to film, or is it just done during the normal day. Specifically all these shows that film in Grand Central Station, how is that acheived?

2. What with the impact of hurricane Sandy, what impact will this have on shows that film in NYC?

There'll be a City or Mayor's department that deals with and facilitates sort of thing, there's one in London and Liverpool has one, maybe some other British Cities too.

As stated above, production companies need to get permits to film in certain locations at certain times. Same rule applies for most places, be it New York or London.

As for how the hurricane has affected filming in New York the last day or so, nearly all television production has been temporarily shut down. The only two programmes that continued as planned that i am aware of are The Late Show with David Letterman and Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, although both recorded their shows in empty studios without an audience last night.

The NYC government gives special grant for shows to film in New York, examples include the last season of Curb Your Enthusiasm (which featured a guest appearance from NYC's Mayor Bloomberg, as himself) and 30 Rock (which shoots exteriors at 30 Rockefeller Plaza and interiors at a studio in New York).

When I was in New York about 8 years ago they were filming without a trace at grand central station. It was in the middle of the day so it wasn't too busy and caused no problems for commuters and most tourist only stayed and watch for 5-10 mins because it can be very slow and boring to watch because very little actually happened in the scene.
