NY POST July 31, 2017...Costumed characters in Times Square are giving the finger to attempts to rein them in, refusing to stay in designated areas and continuing to curse in front of kiddies and threaten passers-by for dough.Foul-mouthed desnudas, grabby Hulks and tourist-terrorizing gangs of Minnie Mice are still brazenly holding the Crossroads of the World hostage even amid a heavy presence of NYPD cops, who act oblivious to their disturbing antics. At any given moment on two recent afternoons, only half of the two-dozen tip-mooching characters stayed behind the blue lines of Times Square’s “Designated Activity Zones,” or DAZs, the city-mandated areas created last year as their boundary for posing for photos and asking for tips.
The most shameless of the costumed pack repeatedly left the DAZs to grab, mob and berate tourists — “Take a photo lady! Mami!” shouted a trio of overly-aggressive Minnie Mice — in their frantic pursuit of cash. NYPD officers’ hands were tied since most of the costumed panhandlers are illegal — and under the MAYOR de Blasio administration, it’s a no-no to go after them. The law-enforcement source added that past proposals to license the creatures went nowhere because most of the panhandlers are illegal immigrants and they wouldn’t register anyway.
What's to stop ISIS terrorists to dress up as these costumed street characters with suicide bomb vests underneath the costume and create complete havoc in Times Square with coordinated detonations, just like the Boston Marathon Bombing? Starting June 21st 2016 the costumed street characters were confined to the new zones — 10-foot-by-50-foot rectangles marked off with teal-colored paint on the pavement of pedestrian plazas between West 42nd and West 47th streets, where Broadway and Seventh Avenue crisscross, but the goons roam all over the area anyway.
It is a small stab at taming Times Square, the glittery, Technicolored public space that is a must-see for tourists and an important thoroughfare for residents and commuters. Between 350,000 and 450,000 pedestrians pass through it daily, according to the Times Square Alliance, a business improvement group. The
Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, in photo above 4th from left with the hoodie, had traveled to Times Square NYC in April 2012 with some of his pals in the center strip in front of TGI Friday’s in the 1500 block of Broadway Times Square near 46th Street, none of the others pictured above are suspected of being involved in the Tsarnaevs’ plot. The Times Square bomb plot fell apart after the Tsarnaev brothers were intercepted by police in a stolen car in Boston and got into a fierce gun battle that left Tamerlan Tsarnaev dead NYPD boss Ray Kelly said at the time.
