Some visitors to New York encounter one man's demonstration. A man with a sign stood on a well-trafficked street corner, proclaiming his religious views.
I've written before that New Yorkers either offer their opinion quite freely or they say nothing at all.
Part of living in a city is encountering people of many persuasions, beliefs and backgrounds. There's no shortage of diversity, and diversity is another word for equality - everyone is entitled to his or her very different point of view.
In this city, you can express whatever you like, however you wish. You can walk down the street wearing next to nothing at all, and no one will stop you.
Hey, people may not even notice.
