Hundreds of bare-chested men and women marched down Broadway to protest recent comments from the city’s Mayor, Bill de Blasio, and police commissioner, Bill Bratton.

Being topless in public is legal in New York, but the Mayor and commissioner have said bare-chested painted women in Times Square who pose for photos with tourists are a nuisance.

The Mayor said in a statement:

Millions of families and visitors come to Times Square every year to see and experience the bustling metropolis of New York City — the Crossroads of the World. Yet that experience has been diminished by the proliferation of topless individuals and costumed characters who too often harass people and expose families to inappropriate acts. To ensure all are welcome, and to continue the great success that is Times Square, the City will aggressively pursue every avenue for regulating these behaviours.
