There used to be only the naked cowboy and naked cowgirl in Times Square in New York City. Nowadays, the center of downtown Manhattan is swarmed with buskers either in elaborate costumes or almost in their birthday suits–even if it’s cold.
For most naive tourists, these Time Square buskers are fun to look at—that they couldn’t resist asking them for a photo op. Little did they know that after pressing the shutter, they’re supposed to give “tips” for the “service” these buskers rendered to them.
Some buskers work in group. You only ask a busker to pose with you but others would jump right in the frame when they see the opportunity. You just can’t pay one but all of them who joined in the fun. You’ll give $5? Think again.
