Central Park sunbathers skip masks — and pants — in coronavirus defiance

Sunbathers flocked to Central Park’s Sheep Meadow to catch some rays on a gorgeous Sunday, but many opted not to cover their faces — or much else, for that matter — despite the ongoing pandemic.

Several among the thongs — er, throngs — stripped down to their skivvies to let the sunshine near where it don’t shine.

But while going pantsless was simply a bold fashion choice, those who forswore masks and blew off social-distancing guidelines were flouting a state mandate put in place to stem the spread of the coronavirus.
