This is bullshit. I too am not a big fan of those costumed characters taking pics with tourists to get tips off of but Times Square is a public place. They should be able to do that stuff if they want to even if you don’t like it. If you don’t want to be bothered by them, all you have to do is ignore them and keep walking. It’s that easy isn’t it?
If women complain about topless women in Times Square, how come nobody says anything about the naked cowboy that walks around with an acoustic guitar? You know who I’m talking about right? People complain about the topless women in Times Square but nobody complains about the naked cowboy. WHy the double standard?
This country is just sad. When things don’t go people’s way, they take away their rights. Like I said above, I’m not a big fan of costumed characters taking people’s money either but that’s their right and their business. If that’s how they want to make their money, that’s their decision. NYC is run by liberal politicians so it’s no surprise anyway.
Taking away peoples rights to do what they want to do is disgusting. When will it end? I thought this was America?
Billboard reports that the “Virgin Megastore” in Times Square, New York City is closing down this coming April. The “Virgin Megastore” is a huge store that goes three floors down, they have escalators and everything. It sells everything in the entertainment biz: music, movies, video games, etc.
The New Yorker’s who live in that great city may now have to shop for music at the Union Square store. The decision for closing the “Virgin Megastore” in New York had something to do with the real estate, and the value connected to the location.
Honestly, I must say…..good riddance. When I was just in New York City at Times Square earlier this year, I shopped at that “Virgin Megastore” in Times Square, and to be honest, I hated the store. It’s too huge. It took me two escalators down to get to the DVD section and took me a while to go back up and out of the store with the huge crowd of people in there.
Times Square in New York has a lot of cool stores to shop at, but the “Virgin Megastore” isn’t one of them.
