Acorn Street Boston photo shoot location

To set up an impromptu photo shoot here, would you need permission from anyone?  I'm talking you set up less than 5-10 minutes, fire off a few shots with a model and pack things back up.  

What that require permission?

You need to check with Boston.

Anything that gets in the way may get noticed. If you're doing commercial work, you likely need a permit. If, however, you can get in, get your shots, and get out without annoying people or causing problems, it's unlikely anyone will care. But you don't provide any real detail on what you plan to do, so one can only offer so much advice.

That's what I'm hoping for, in and out and gone with the wind!

Acorn Street depending on time of day can be next to no people going through it.  I'm not going to give advice, but would say, if I was going to set up a quick light source and have model ready and be under 10 minutes, I would go for it.

The two times I have been there, there was no one on that small stretch of cobblestone road.  You'll be fine, just make it quick and don't make a huge production out of it.

Was up in Boston last year and strolled over to Acorn street both in the day, then back at night.  When I was there during the day, there was one other photographer shooting it.  When I came back at night, no one else was there.

Nice shot, it's kind of a hard place to find first time.  Make sure you have Google map going!

Hey Alex, like your shot, but it seems kind of reddish?
