When I was first working in NYC, back in the early 80's, sights like this were common from my office. In the 90's, I worked across the street from Radio City Music Hall and the Rockettes would use the roof to sunbathe. We kept the binoculars in my office. I was living in Hoboken at the time and used the roof of my apartment for parties and relaxing on weekends when I was stuck in town.
I don't typically sunbathe, my Irish heritage has limited my hours in the sun. My boys are working outdoors this summer and keep their sunscreen with them all day. We know that any SPF over 30 is a waste, and reapplication is the key to good management of sun on skin. I just hope this early 80's sunbather was using some. My friends in high school would use iodine mixed in baby oil. I tried that once and came away with the most wicked burn I can remember.
