NYDN- Some were shocked. Others disgusted. But for some, it was the breast day ever! Dozens of semi-nude women gave the city a Double-D eyeful Sunday when they bared their boobs in Central Park and then marched through the streets. The daring display was part of “National Go-Topless Day” – indeed, there is such a thing – and stunned jaded New Yorkers and wide-eyed tourists alike. “This is unbelievable – and super,” said Dalvin Jan, 21, who rents bicycles for a living on Central Park South. “I’m going to tell my wife to join in.” With Chaka Khan’s “I’m Every Woman” blaring from speakers and chants of “free your breasts, free your mind,” the troupe of bare-breasted women – and their enthusiastic male supporters – paraded their way along Central Park South. “We’re all here for the same reason – to allow women to be free in the park like men,” organizer Sylvie Chabot, 54, of Montreal, told the crowd at a midday rally at Columbus Circle. Motorists honked their horns in support while bemused tourists took photos from passing tour buses. “I’m pretty surprised,” said Carolyn Meierjurgen, 49, of New Jersey, who was taking a horse carriage ride in the park. “If they want to do it, let them do it. I couldn’t,” she admitted. Several unhappy onlookers complained to cops who were powerless to intervene. New York is the only state in the country where women can be topless legally, after a 1992 ruling in the state’s highest court. That means any woman can walk around the city at any time with no shirt on. “It’s not about baring your breasts,” she said. “The true meaning is to normalize women’s bodies.”Most passersby were amused by the sight of scores of half-naked people.”It’s nice for them,” said unfazed Swedish tourist Birgitta Asplin, 58. “It’s the human body – nothing more!”
Wow I can’t believe I forgot to post this on Monday! As I advertised last week Sunday was “Go Topless” Day in New York City. I didn’t get a chance to make it over to Central Park because I was hungover and thought it was going to Hurricane Bill all over my face. But by all accounts it looks like it turned out to be a great success, and by great success I mean there were tits everywhere! Granted I’m sure most of them looked like the chick on the left but the chick on the right isn’t too bad eh? I mean she’s no smokeshow but if you’re getting a free view of the tits no reason to complain right? Anyway who knew that New York City was the only place where you could legally be topless? Learn something every day I guess. Sure can’t pull this off in Boston!
PS- Check out this guy below. What’s up with the polo dude? Let’s see some tits!
