NY counters critics, stages topless parade

Dozens of bare-chested women taking part in the 'Go Topless Pride Parade' took to the streets of midtown Manhattan to counter critics complaining about topless tip-seekers in Times Square.

Appearing bare-breasted has been legal in New York since 1992. But mayor Bill De Blasio and police commissioner Bill Bratton say the body-painted women in the square who take photos with tourists are a nuisance. Sunday's parade was among dozens of such events in about 60 cities celebrating the worldwide Go Topless Day. Two Dutch tourists relaxing nearby said they didn't understand  all the fuss. There are more important things to worry about than nipples. Why do you need to march if it is already legal, said Paul Martin, 37 of Amsterdam.
