NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Mayor Bill de Blasio says the city is preparing to do something about topless and painted women who pose for pictures in Times Square and solicit tips.
As CBS2’s Tony Aiello reported, the decision came after complaints from tourists, and concerns from people who rely on tourist dollars.
“It’s wrong, it’s wrong. It’s just — look I, as a progressive who believes in civil liberties and believes in our First Amendment, I understand the legal challenge here. But I don’t think that’s the end of the discussion,” de Blasio said.
