A person is guilty of exposure if he or she appears in a public place in such a manner that the private or intimate parts of his or her body are unclothed or exposed. For purposes of this section, the private or intimate parts of a female person shall include that portion of the breast which is below the top of the areola. This section shall not apply to the breast-feeding of infants. This section does prohibit the exposure of a person as herein defined in any public place, at any time, whether or not such person is entertaining or performing in a play, exhibition, show or entertainment. Violation of this section constitutes the violation of "exposure of a person" and is a violation and punishable by fine or imprisonment in the same fashion as violations may be punished by fine or imprisonment under the Penal Law of the State of New York, namely to pay an amount fixed by the court not exceeding $250, or a sentence of imprisonment with the term to be fixed by the court not exceeding 15 days. This section is enacted pursuant to the provisions of § 245.01 of the Penal Law of the State of New York, which expressly authorized towns to enact local laws prohibiting such exposure.
