Yow! Waitress strips naked for final shift at Brooklyn pizzeria

Restaurant goers at Roberta's, a pizzeria in Bushwick, Brooklyn, got more than just their dinner. Customers got an eyeful when they were being served by a naked waitress.

I'm surprised they didn't have a statement by the waitress as to why she was doing it.

*insert "slice of pie" joke here*

Also, I'd be worried about burns.

I'm honestly surprised she wasn't arrested. I mean, I have nothing against public nudity in a philosophical sense, but I'm pretty sure it's against the law in NY still.

And if not in NYC generally, specifically where food service is involved.

How likely is it that anyone called the police to complain?

I honestly don't know. It would depend on the composition of the crowd. But I'd imagine if there were people with kids there, the likelihood would be decent.

The fact that there's no mention of police in the news report would tend to indicate that no one called them.

I didn't mean to infer that police were called and she wasn't arrested. It should have been phrased "I'm surprised no one called the police"

They probably didn't want to lose their place in line.

Also, (stereotyping) the type of people who'd go to a place that serves "Cheesus Christ" pizza probably don't have as much of hangup about nudity as the general population.

It's legal in NY. Although, in a restaurant, it appears to illegal.

This is about a different topless woman...

We emailed NYPD Deputy Commissioner of Public Information Paul Browne our original post, asking whether or not this woman was breaking the law. He replied:
The state's highest court established long ago that women have the same right as men to appear topless in public. Absent a link to some commercial enterprise or promotion, the woman's lack of certain attire in this instance does not appear to be a police matter.

ETA: Sorry, that's topless, not naked.

Public toplessness is legal in New York, but public nudity isn't. If all she was wearing was boots and stockings, I think that breaks the law.

This being snopes and all, I would so go to a place serving Cheesus Christ pizza. I, however, would be very uncomfortable i.e. "hung up" about a naked person serving pizza or just walking around.

But it very mutch depends on the local laws. In some parts of the US wearing a thong (by a man or a woman) would get you arrested; in other parts it's totally legal.

All they said was that she was wearing fishnets. They do make fishnets that go all the way up to your waist like regular pantyhose. If there was some extra coverage on the crotch or she had a thong on under them she should be legal; as topfreedom (aka toplessness) is legal in NY.

It isn't illegal here. I've seen plenty of topless women at Pride and the Boriqua and Italia day parades. She was wearing boots, fishnets, and an apron... she's golden. I especially loved the peace out in sharpie across her back.

No, it actually doesn't. See through clothes are not illegal. If they were large portions of NYers would have been arrested at some point in the 90's. You have to have an article of clothing on your bottom half. Panties and stockings count, you do not need both. I'm actually pretty sure it was upheld that body paint was acceptable a few years ago.

Of course, there is the possibility that this is a staged publicity stunt. The waitress might not even have been a waitress there, just a stripper hired for the day.
