Mommy, mommy what are those two naked people doing in the tree? Well little Jimmy they are pretending to be birds. A couple of nude New Yorkers took to a big tree in Central Park to make a statement. A NY Newsday bird watcher reported:
Two tree climbers whose sexual exploits attracted hundreds of viewers in Central Park were being held Friday for arraignment on criminal charges.
The two — William Rund, 32, and Christopher Montero, 17 — attracted the attention of police and parkgoers for four hours Thursday after they climbed a 55-foot Larch and put on an X-rated show. The two, wearing little if anything, were finally coaxed down by police and taken to a hospital for psychiatric evaluation.
Police charged the pair on Friday with reckless endangerment, resisting arrest, criminal mischief, public lewdness and disorderly conduct.
Mayor Michael Bloomberg, during an interview with John Gambling on WABC/770 AM, lambasted the spectacle but conceded that it showed that the city still has character...
The two told police they would not come down until they received an apology from the media for articles depicting transgendered people in a negative way.
The Transgendered People of America Association said they don't know Bill or Chris.
