No Pants 2k8 NYC Reports, January 12, 2008

This afternoon we had around 900 participants in the 7th Annual No Pants Subway Ride. The crowd was so large that we spread out over three subway lines, using the 6 (per tradition), R, and 2 trains. The NYPD was there to escort us just like last year, and they were extremely nice. Everyone ended up together in Union Square for a giant above-ground pantless gathering in the nice 50 degree warmth. If you were there, please take a few moments to leave an agent report in the comments. With 900 riders, I”™m sure there are 900 different stories. We will be using this page to compile links to photos and video as it becomes available, and sometime in the next few days we”™ll create an official mission report.

Thanks to everyone who came out to participate! If this was your first event, make sure you are on the NY Agents mailing list so you”™ll find out about upcoming missions.

Here are two teaser photos from Chad Nicholson:
