NEW YORK (PIX11) -- The selfie stick is under attack at some of New York City's museums.

The telescoping camera accessory is considered a safety hazard. The Museum of Modern Art has banned Selfie sticks, so has the Brooklyn Museum and the Guggenheim.

Jamie Brockway thinks the whole thing is silly "life is too short to worry about small insignificant issues like that."

Selfie sticks are still allowed at the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Museum of Natural History, although they are considering the ban.

Selfie stick users PIX 11 spoke with day they never accidentally hit anyone. Jasmine Veil says the stick enhances photos by stretching out further than your arm can to include more of the background "without it you can't see the dinosaurs."
