I knew all of you would appreciate a photo of what the “First Ever” event will look like this weekend. I fired up the old DeLorean to make this post possible. You’re welcome.

Actually I don’t believe any section of 245 would be applicable here as they all seem to imply physical actions and physical displays.

S 245.00 Public lewdness.
” A person is guilty of public lewdness when he intentionally exposes
the private or intimate parts of his body in a lewd manner or commits
any other lewd act (a) in a public place, or (b) in private premises
under circumstances in which he may readily be observed from either a
public place or from other private premises, and with intent that he be
so observed.
Public lewdness is a class B misdemeanor.

Please heed your own cautions as, in light of your erroneous citation to Penal Law § 245.00, you could be charged with a violation of New York Penal Law §§ 135.60(4) or (5) for your threats of prosecution and exposing IP addresses in your efforts to compel certain conduct.

Be guided accordingly.
