I am a new visitor to New York and for the first time last week I saw this Naked Cowboy dude in Times Square playing his guitar. I know that this topic has probably been covered before, so I will be very brief:

Can somone please tell me how this guy is able to get away with this legally? I thought that walking around, basically naked was against the law and considered indecent exposure.

So, In New York anyone can stand on the corner in their underware not be arrested, so long as they are not showing their private parts? I am not trying to be funny, I am just curious about New York laws as they pertain to this Cowboy guy.

He's wearing his tighty whities -- and his guitar pretty well covers the ..... errrrrr ..... "offending area" -- so he's not doing anything illegal.

Annoying, yes. Illegal, no.

I'm surprised you never heard of this guy. He's a pretty popular draw these days. It's NYC, what's illegal or "unacceptable" elsewhere is done there. If the cops busted every half naked annoying person, the real criminals would have a free for all.
