A nude model arrested last year in Times Square won a handsome settlement from city officials.
Zoe West, 22, was taken into custody last August after stripping down to naught but body paint, handcuffs, and a wry smile.
The model had been carefully painted by famed local body painter Andy Golub in a stunt that drew onlookers ranging from shocked tourists to bemused office workers.
Her attorney, Ron Kuby, told the New York Post: ‘The beauty of New York City is a naked girl can win a nice suit.’
Mr Kuby said that Ms West plans to settle her case against the city today, to the tune of $15,000.
On the evening of the body painting last year, several NYPD officers showed up and took the woman into custody, binding her with handcuffs and hauling her off in a police van.
Ms West said there was nothing against the law about her modelling.
She told the New York Post last year: 'I don't believe there is truly anything wrong with what I did and with what he was doing.'
