New York's privacy law prohibits surreptitious visual surveillance for the purpose of amusement, profit, abuse, sexual gratification or for "no legitimate purpose," in any place where a person has a reasonable expectation of privacy and without that person's knowledge and consent. However, the state makes an exception to for permissible video surveillance with a "security system wherein a written notice is conspicuously posted on the premises stating that a video surveillance system has been installed for the purpose of security or video surveillance devices installed in such a manner that their presence is clearly and immediately obvious."
