Model Fights for Right to Be Naked in Times Square

By

In August, nude model Zoe West was arrested when she removed her G-string in the middle of Times Square during a public body-painting project.  Now she's suing the city for violating her civil rights. Her lawyer says, “It is not illegal to be naked in New York as long as you are doing it for the purpose of a play, exhibition, performance or show." So disrobing in Times Square in order to scare tourists is illegal, but disrobing in Times Square while performing a play that just happens to scare tourists is perfectly legal.
