Did you know that it's legal to be topless in NYC? (Yes.) Well, it is! Decided in the case of Rochester Romana Santorelli Vs. State of New York, it is perfectly legal for men and women alike to roam the streets without a top, like cattle.

This fact has led me to create a short documentary about American opinion surrounding nudity and body image. The project will culminate with an event I am hosting in Washington Square Park (date TBA, but definitely somewhere between April 18th and 22nd). (Oh, that's perfect - my mom will be in town visiting then) I'd like to gather as many female participants as possible (in the hundreds, preferably) to remove their tops simultaneously in the park. (What about the men? I thought you said it was legal for men and women... Why just women, eh?) WE WILL NOT DISCRIMINATE! ALL SHAPES AND SIZES ARE WELCOME! Of course, you will be armed with a copy of this law if an ignorant officer happens to trouble you.

As an NYU Film Student, I aim to create a contemplative look at our fascination/titillation with the human body and promise utmost professionalism. Please contact me via email if you are interested. This is going to be exciting...

Why on earth would anyone want to run around topless in New York City? In the spring (it just snowed the other day). And like we don't get harassed enough by creey men when we wear our parkas. Give me a break.
