A couple of years ago, Diana and I spent Memorial Day Weekend in New York City. It was a wonderful getaway for us and we had a great time. We toured the city, and saw a number of the sites so widely known about the Big Apple. Times Square, Central Park, Grand Central Station, the Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island and more. It was a fun weekend and other than the crowd of people who had the same idea, we had a wonderful time.
One of the more colorful people we saw that weekend was the Naked Cowboy.
From Wikipedia: Robert John Burck (born December 23, 1970 in Cincinnati, Ohio), better known as the Naked Cowboy, is a New York City busker and prominent fixture of Times Square. His routine consists of playing guitar wearing only cowboy boots, a hat, and a pair of briefs.
I never realized I traveled several hundred miles to see a guy from my home state.
Certainly a unique act, at least I got to see him in person.....maybe a little too much.
