Simone is halfway to her goal already. The pictures are taken everywhere: on the subway, in bodegas, in a library, on a plane. She doesn't seem to have come into any legal trouble while taking the pictures. She explains the reasoning behind her photos on her site:. As I watch an image-absorbed society care more about the sales at Barney's than the homeless people they ignore as they parade by, I began to ponder: "What would the world feel like naked? What if we didn't have clothing to come in between us? Or if we couldn't show off our social status? What if all we had were our bodies to express our personalities? From there, my photographic project was born.

The mobilisation, known as Go Topless Day, encouraged protesters to unhinge their bras and free their nipples while proudly march through the streets in public. Pictures emerged showing half-naked women walking through Midtown Manhattan as they fight for their right to go topless in public.

An out-of-control influx of near-naked women jockeying for tips has turned Times Square into the XXX-Roads of the World — shocking children and incensing legions of tourists and New Yorkers alike. Last summer, random Saturday tallies of near-naked women in the area found 21 working between May 24 and Aug. This year, between May 30 and July 14, their numbers nearly doubled to 40 as the line between tasteful nudity and blatant exhibitionism became ever blurrier. Most of the ladies, in a patriotic show of pulchritude, sport the American flag across their breasts — but a growing number of critics aren't saluting their multicolored mammaries. Gripers says the women are shakedown artists, aggressively trying to collect a tip in return for a brief Broadway photo op.
The semi-nude women who call themselves desnudas - which is Spanish for naked - pose for photos in exchange for tips. This is despite a heavy presence of NYPD cops who seemingly act oblivious to their disturbing antics. New Yorkers are complaining the street acts are refusing to stay in designated areas and are swearing in front of kids and threatening passers-by. In recent years Times Square has cleansed itself of prostitutes and other hustlers to become a more family friendly destination. These are the city-mandated areas created last year as their boundary for posing for photos and asking for tips. Yet none of those who illegally strayed outside the zones were pounced on by the half-dozen police officers patrolling the pedestrian plaza. The most shameless of the costumed pack repeatedly grab, mob and berate tourists.
