Naked Woman Walks In Two New York Stores, Asks For Time

new york woman naked stores 1

A woman who walked naked into two New York stores and asked for the time has been charged by police with public lewdness, the Times Union newspaper reports.

The woman, who has been identified by Saratoga County District Attorney James Murphy III as Barbara Lafleur, of Saratoga Springs, calmly walked in each store and was captured by security cameras in each.

The first store on Lafleur’s short shopping tour was Curtis Lumber in Ballston Spa, New York. While there, witnesses said she approached two employees before leaving the store of her own accord, telling one employee on the way out, “Have a good day.”

“No one wanted to say much to her,” remarked store manager Bob Eakin to the Times Union. “It’s not a situation you want to be involved in.” It is kinda awkward.

Having failed to score any wood at the lumberyard, Lafleur then walked into a Stewart’s shop nearby, before being asked to leave. One employee told the Union:

“The manager said, ‘Ma’am, are you aware you have no clothes on?’ She was kosher and cool about it, and the manager told her she needed to leave.”

Lafleur has since been charged with public lewdness. In a statement released shortly after charges were pressed, Murphy III gave an insight into Lafleur’s motives:

“While the defendant claimed she was merely expressing her freedom to be fully liberated by walking nude into Stewart’s and Curtis Lumber, this alleged conduct is actually a crime under the penal law. Surprisingly, mental health found no psychiatric issues whatsoever.”

Lafleur could face a maximum of 90 days in jail if convicted.

    I think this lady is fucking outta of her mind thinking you can walk in the store butt naked. that is just Gross as hell. I hope she goes to jail for what she did. I find it really wrong to go to the store with no clothes on. I totally believe she has mental health problems and needs to see a fuc+king doctor for that.

    She's way to ugly and fat to be allowed to get away with this! Reminds me of many that have no business at the beach in anything less than a hazmat suit grossing out folks in tiny bikinis!

    It is legal in the city of New York, also, you just have to stay on the public sidewalks and streets.

    "Surprisingly, mental health found no psychiatric issues whatsoever.” Really? You'd accept that behavior from your wife, daughter or girlfriend? NYC needs new shrinks, that behavior is crackers in anybody's book.

    To everyone who is saying she must be crazy, I ask why? Someone feeling comfortable enough in their own skin that they want to forgo clothes should not be reason to doubt their sanity. I know a nudist and he is perfectly sane. I see some people walking around in so little clothing that they may as well be naked; are they crazy too, or just following current fashion trends?

  10. Janette Hamilton

    Um no it isn't there are hundreds of thousands of nudists all over the world who would beg to differ with you. We were not born wearing the latest fashion trends now were we? Nakedness is perfectly natural, it is the puritanically minded people who find nudity offensive. The naked human form is a perfectly natural thing, only those who have turned the body into a sex object are embarrassed by the lack of clothing on another person. If this woman has the guts to walk around completely naked it doesn't mean she is crazy it simply means she finds no reason to be ashamed of her naked body, I would say that is a healthy attitude not a crazy one. I do think she probably should not have sprung her nakedness on ordinary society however. Walking around completely naked wasn't what was wrong here, WHERE she chose to do so was!

  11. Janette Hamilton

    Seriously? So now we are supposed to draft laws that say only ATTRACTIVE people can walk around naked? Why do I get the feeling you wouldn't fall into that category?

  12. Bill Bienapfl

    Maybe she couldn't find any nice clothes she could afford, so she decided to wear her birthday suit everywhere.

    Unfortunately she knew she would get into trouble and people would have issue with it. If she is perfectly insane, for some reason she wanted to get punish for it. Wish I got to see it in person, her shape looks wonderful in that little low resolution picture.

    Hey Carl?? There is also the choice either NOT to go to the beach in fear of seeing some one "ugly" or you can choose not to look at them or you can put up a photo and show us your face (or not) because frankly,your behavior shows just how UGLY you are :) HAVE A GOOD DAY !!!!! lol

  17. Sylvia Johnson

    Most stores here in the south have a sign that says "no shirt, no shoes, no service". I am not sure if she had shoes on but definitely no shirt.

  18. Sylvia Johnson

    There is that little thing called the law. There is a thing called safety. Let us not forget about appropriate attire, decency, social responsibility and respectability. We all know that perverts and nutcases are out there. Why put forth an extra effort to make sure that you are the one that gets their attention? You could attract them anyway but, that makes you stand out and ensures that you will targeted. (We won't even go into the sexual harassment and reputation that will follow) There is a time and a place for everything. Going to the store in a crowded city with a very high crime rate is probably not the best time for nudity. As members of a society where we all coexist together we have to some boundaries that we live within. ( I would not want to have to squeeze by her in a crowded aisle!!!) Glad the law is there to protect me.

    YOU ARE SO RIGHT I SEE PEOPLE AND GIRLS AND UNDERAGE GIRLS WALKING AROUND WITH PRIVITE PARTS EXPOSED OUT DOORS AND IN THE MALLS EXHIBITIONING THEM SELFS IN FRONT OF MEN THEY ARE 94 PERCENT NAKED WITH THE CLOTHES THEY WEAR THEY ARE NOT ARRESTED WHY?

  20. Kim Harmantas

    I HAD A EX GIRL FRIEND MARIANNE WHO WALKED AROUND WITH SEE THROUGH DRESSES SHORT AND WOULD BEND OVER IN STORES AND EXPOSE HER SELF WITH NO PANTYS. OH BUT IF A MAN DID THAT HE WOULD BE IN PRISON.

    my ex girlfriend carolyn use to wear short skirts with no pantys and show her you know what in the bars and to her son when she would arrive home dressed like that

    carolyn would sit across from her son so he could look up her skirt or sit indian style with loose shorts on and her vigina hanging out uncovered in view of her son austin and his friends to

    I have asked the same question before. In some places they want to make decency laws to target males that are wearing saggy pants. That is fine. They are not the only ones that are indecently exposed. Why target one group? I have seen women with cleavage so low that I have to turn my head to keep from looking at pretty much their whole boob exposed. It makes me uncomfortable. Heterosexual males are not the only ones out here in society. Some of us do not want to be flashed by women. Again. There is a time and a place for everything.

  24. Sylvia Johnson

    That may be part of the reason she is your ex. I have some exes that are doozies also. For all the things I knew, I found out later there are even worse things that I did not know about.

  25. Kim Harmantas

    SHE WOULD ALSO EXPOSE HER SELF TO HER SON AT THE END OF THE NITE WHEN WE GOT HOME HE WAS 19 SHE WOULD SIT ACROSS FORM HIM SO HE COULD LOOK AT HER VIGINA BUT THEY WAS SEXAUL TOGETHER ALREADY FOR YEARS BEFORE I MET HER CAROLYN DEAN "PRIMM" FROM WOOD RIDGE IL

    Did you report her? She should have been under the jail. That is ultimate in dysfunctional parenting. That kid is probably messed up for life.

  27. Justine Gabbi Gabbidon

    Sylvia Johnson but these laws by men does not say anything if they are not god laws if we people followed the laws god made the way we followed the ones the president/government made 99% of us would be sure of our place heaven,these rules people make says nothing.
    and yes i know it is not something we would do since i probably would have to be going crazy to do such thing but just making a point about these rules people make

  28. Lainee BobMom Richmond

    How did I know someone would manage to drag religion into this? Oh wait, because it's the internet and people can't keep their religious views to themselves. Well, Justine Gabbi Gabbidon, since you felt the need to share your religious opinion on my comment, I'll share a little with you. I don't believe in your God and I don't care whether you think me or anyone else is going to Heaven. We all have our beliefs and no one should be discriminated against for theirs. I accept that you believe in God, so why can't you just believe that without shoving it down other people's throats? I don't throw my religion at anyone; we all have the right to believe anything we want. A lady walking naked into a store because she wanted to has nothing to do with religion or God. It was her personal choice. Oh, and by the way, if you followed the "laws God made", you wouldn't eat shellfish, you would stone to death any woman who had had multiple sexual partners, and you would both do and abstain from a myriad of other ridiculous things. So please, everyone, stop jumping on the religion train every chance you get; practice your faith and leave others to practice theirs. Even if you wholeheartedly believe that someone is going to Hell for not following your religion, it isn't your place to say. Not only do they probably not care at all about your opinion on the state of their soul, but you're likely to get a logical and well-constructed answer in return. And that is likely to make a whole lot of people angry, as I'm sure will be evidenced by the comments I'm sure to get in response to this. So, my whole point: You're Christian, good for you. I'm not, good for me. Also, please try to use some semblance of proper grammar when trying to make a point. If someone has to read what you wrote 3-5 times just to understand it, then you need to brush up on your communication skills and your mastery of your own language.

  29. Sylvia Johnson

    @ Justine I know that when the law is in violation of the will of God we do not follow. If we are going to stand up for our faith then we just take the punishment (some have even laid down their life). But there have to be some laws in society to establish boundaries and guidelines for us to co-exist together. The Bible says that the laws are for the lawless (1 Tim 1:9). The way of God is not in everyone's heart. In addition, religions are amongst the most abused systems in the world. People use religion for all kinds of abuses. Every religion has people twisting up their doctrine for their own personal gain. We just need some rules and regulations that everyone has to abide by regardless of how they slant their religious beliefs. Romans 13:1 tells us to be subject to the governing authorities.

    Candid Camera made a movie years ago called What Would You Say to a Naked Lady. Very funny. It involved different settings a naked woman appears. One guy waiting for an elevator sees her walk up and wait with him. After a moment or two he turns to her and says,"I like your outfit. Is it new?"

  37. Alfredo Sedano

    well, yeah, its great that people can feel comfortable to walk around naked, but in the privacy of their own home or wherever it's allowed. but in public, just because you're comfortable with your own naked body, doesn't mean others are.

    Do explain how walking around naked to make a point iis a mental disorder, preferably by stating the name of the disorder, and how you, a random person on the internet, is more qualified to make this diagnosis than those people.

    Check your dictionary. Al Fresco means dining outside as in a patio cafe or even a picnic. Au naturel is the correct phrase.

  51. Mark Mueller

    I'm reminded of a Seinfeld episode where a girlfriend went about naked. When Jerry tried to do the same thing, his girlfriend pointed out there's good naked and bad naked. I don't want to see bad naked. Years ago I went with some friends to a nude beach. One of my friends saw a naked man and immediately freaked out, claiming the guy must be gay. I laughed! I asked "What did you expect to see? A beach full of naked Playboy centerfolds?" Most nudists aren't the "beautiful people" you hope to see. After an hour or two I was ready to leave. Some (most) people aren't very attractive when naked.

  52. Rich Edwards

    Nude is not Lewd, otherwise we could be charged as soon as we exit the womb or take a shower. If public NUDITY is against the law there, then she should be charged with that "Crime". If she committed a "Lewd Act> then she could be charged with it but the act of merely being as God created you is Not Lewd.

  53. Anonymous

    Really? What is lewd about a naked body? There's a lot of people that perhaps could be considered lewd while fully clothed.

  55. Amy Collins

    Lainee BobMom Richmond I don't think she was "shoving religion down your throat." You can't possibly have that response every times someone says anything at all regarding God. I also think, while she may need some help with punctuation (or just doesn't care to use it), you may want to know more about the Bible if you are going to talk about it yourself. The Old Testament laws were done away with when Jesus gave his life. Please educate yourself before you try to educate others.

  56. Maybe AB

    @Sylvia Johnson– I WISH I could say there are boundaries, but it seems to be different depending on where one lives. In some cities, nudity is allowed by "rights". As I've said before, there USED to be a law for indecent exposure (and I wish there still WAS), but where does the law draw the line? I don't necessarily believe this woman was a nut case– just someone who has more nerve than I would. And if certain ones think it's OK to nurse their babies in public and think nothing of it or dress provocatively, what's the difference? AND what is the motive of those who dress provocatively? To bring on drama? They're doing the same thing.

  57. Amy Collins

    @Maybe, I really think it is all for attention, this lady and girls/women who dress provocatively. They just want people to look. I will however say, that I have nursed my children in public (only a handful of times) because sometimes there aren't many options. I will also say, not too many people probably even knew I was doing it, I wasn't flashing everyone.

    Can you wear simulated nude clothes?

    It is funny that the DA said being nude was illegal under *penal* law. Penal and nude in the same sentence.

  62. Zenos Pipkin

    I have spent YEARS looking at the naked human body, and I fail to see how it is offensive, especially that of the FEMALE body! We are all born naked, and when we die many of us will be stripped of our clothing and laid bare, so that our bodies can be washed, and if none of us look anything like Hugh Jackman, and Anne Hathaway, then that's how it is, and there's nothing we can do about it! Still, the human body is a fine looking species, and we should be proud that we had use of it! I for one will keep LOOKING at the naked human female body, and no one has any right to try and stop me!

  63. Zenos Pipkin

    Btw, there ARE times and places where we NEED to wear clothing, of course, so do not think that I am for wide-open public nudity, because I'm not!

  64. Zenos Pipkin

    Harry Duncan, does the saying "if you have nothing nice to say just keep your yap shut" apply in a court of law, also, if you are a witness for the prosecution? Would a judge let a person get away with that? See, I happen to not BELIEVE in that saying, because it is silly and childish, and makes no SENSE!

  65. Judy Shingler

    Sylvia Johnson, As a believer in God, God made Adam and Eve without clothes and they were fine until they sinned against God by eating the fruit from the forbidden tree. Then the Word tells us they recognized they were naked and covered themselves likewise as we all do today. So who was this gutsy lady??? Maybe she thinks of herself as a PERFECT 10 and obviously doesn't know the Garden lesson!!! LOL!!!

  66. Amy Irene White

    how is this different than the Real Housewife person who walked all around in a see through shirt with no bra? She didn't get arrested.

  67. Rob Gustaveson

    Born naked and die naked…unless too fat one should be allowed to be naked, just sit on a towel. If I was in shape I know plenty of places to be naked. In the sun –quite healing; Laws (many of them) are so stupid. High Heels, make-up and plucking ones eyebrows is the real crime. lol (Too fat: ugly to the eyes in modern times).

  68. Rich Edwards

    I disagree, those who are ashamed of themselves may hide if they wish, I have been a nudist all my life, I see nothing to be ashamed of and no reason to hide. Laws otherwise are based upon crazy religions and cults.

  69. Alta Hanlon

    There is something wrong upstairs with women who expose themselves to their sons. If a father did that, he would be arrested for indecent exposure. These women are nut cases. Doesn't the law protect children from this?

    I Personally see nothing wrong with this. I don't blame new york cops though about her well being, considering new york is filled with all sorts of people. they don't want her being in danger, or having people think the wrong idea, were talking about people who thinks "oh she dresses that way so she was asking for it". I think there should be a undisclosed state where nudity is legal. problem solved

  77. Lewis Alva

    If it was a sexy 20 something doing this she would've got a laugh and warning by the cops but for her its a goddamn criminal offense to be naked >.<.

  78. Roger DesMoulins

    I contend that female modesty is in decline. Some facts.
    * There is a lot of nudist chatting in social media.
    * Hundreds of thousands of everyday women have seen fit to exhibit their pink bits on the internet. A majority make no effort to conceal their faces.
    * Some women have decided that they have no problem with their intimate bodies, only a problem with people having a problem. There is a movement called sex positive feminism.
    * When I was in college, it was whispered that a handful of women did not ask men who were not their boyfriends to leave the room when they wanted to change clothes.

    Given current fashion in bikinis, short skirts, and backless knickers, is it surprising that a woman decided to go all the way? Ms LaFleur does not look young, nor is she conventionally pretty. I submit that there is no compelling interest to charge women over 30 with indecent exposure for being naked outdoors on a warm day. In Europe, what she did would be humoured on a hiking trail or quiet beach. What I cannot defend is that she did this on private property without the owner's permission.

    Another thing. Breaking the rules, defying the law, flouting convention are fun, even for women. Many of the alternatives to walking naked into Walmart's strike me as a good deal more sinister: driving on country roads at 80mph, drinking Jack Daniels; pop ecstasy at parties; have a black boyfriend from the ghetto; hookup with a stranger 5-10 weekends a year. Far far worse than Ms LaFleur's behaviour is high school teachers having affairs with 16-17 year old students.
