Topless women at Times Square - level 1

Topless women at Times Square - level 1

01-09-2015 15:00

Times Square is in New York. It is a famous place. Many tourists visit it. There are many buskers at Times Square. You can take a picture with Iron Man, for example.

Some buskers are a little unusual. They are topless women. New York’s mayor does not like this. He wants to stop the women.

Some people agree with him. Others do not. They say that it is part of New York.

Difficult words: busker (a person who plays music or does something fun in the streets to make some money), mayor (the boss of a city), agree (if you agree with somebody, you think what he or she thinks).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
