Our 4th of July was not all about educating the police in the laws of New York — before and after our blue-suited friends showed up, we spent a blissful afternoon in the pursuit of happiness, and we want to show you that side of the day as well.
Food treats included pastries from the legendary Dominique Ansel (yes, including two cronuts!)…
…while books included classics (Isaac Asimov’s The Stars, Like Dust! Kafka’s Amerika!)…
…non-fiction (Freakonomics! Please Kill Me!)…
…graphic novels (Sex Criminals! The Misadventures of Jane!)…
…and the yet-to-be-published (Quarry In the Black! The Knife Slipped!).
Our companions included one member’s 3-year-old daughter (who briefly went bottomless, the little nudist) and another’s gorgeous parrot, represented in both actual and tattoo form.
We enjoyed the shade and the sun,
the grass and the waterside promenade,
vigorous activity and lazing around.
And we made many new friends, ranging from these 12-year-old boys
to women of all ages who were astonished and/or delighted to learn that female toplessness is as legal as the male variety.
If you’re astonished and/or delighted yourself and would like to give it a try, we’re just an email away (firstname.lastname@example.org), and we welcome inquiries from any bold, body-positive women in or visiting the New York area.
We’ve got eight weeks of summer left — don’t miss your chance to enjoy them the way they were meant to be: with liberty and justice for all.
