There are a lot of things that are synonymous with New York City. The Statue of Liberty, the Empire State Building, and even the Naked Cowboy. Nudist activists? That one doesn’t normally fit in that group of NYC tourist attractions…but it might very soon.
Holly Van Voast has bared her breasts in Times Square and on the Staten Island Ferry. Now, we all know that New York puts up with a lot of weird things that weird people might do, but apparently Voast crossed the line. I was unaware that there was even a line to cross in NYC, but Voast found it.
The “line” was crossed when she got naked in the middle of Grand Central Terminal. Voast was summoned to court yesterday where she took off her black coat to reveal…her naked breasts! Everyone in the courtroom was taken completely off-guard. She took the moment to note how frustrated she was with stigmas against public nudity.
Although her stunt in court could have landed her in contempt, it worked to her advantage. The case was tabled and basically dismissed. Voast will stay out of jail as long as she stays out of trouble for the next six months.
