"The naked who????" Times Square Tip by Dutchnatasja

Times Square, New York City: 272 reviews and 432 photos

  Naked Cowboy
by Dutchnatasja

The Naked Cowboy! Well what can I say about this guy? Properly that he makes a lot of money!

After many tours back and forth across the country, countless photo shoots, live performances, The Naked Cowboy slowly became an entertainment icon. Now boasting national recognition as an urban legend of sorts and several notable TV appearances (Friends, MTV, Today Show). Standing, as he is daily, at the intersection of 45th Street & Seventh Avenue in the heart of Times Square, he may look the very picture of sideshow clown or outright lunatic (especially when the temperature drops below freezing). When we saw him, it was December and freezing cold. Whether you like him or not, it’s the only walking, talking, and singing tourist attraction of New York.

Address: Manhattan, NY 10036
Directions: At the intersection of 45th Street & 7th Avenue in the heart of Times Square.
