Mickey Mouse is tired

After refurbishing my studio attic (painting, new floor etc) it is high time for a new TE presentation from New York.
Walking 7th street in a northerly direction we automatically arrived at Times Square and were surrounded by Costumed Characters, one of the specialties of Times Square.
Mickey and Minnie Mouse, Hello Kitty, Cookie Monster, Lady Liberty, Spiderman, Batman, Elmo, Mario, Buzz Lightyear and Woody from Toy Story and many other characters walk around to let you take for a fee a photo together with you or with your kids. The children are of course their special targets. Occasionally there are also malicious cartoon characters who intimidate tourists and try to steal their money. There are various stories on the internet about the arrests of a number of cartoon characters.
To keep the nuisance by the cartoon figures under control, the city has created activity zones, restricting costumed characters who seek tips to designated areas.

I followed for a moment the activities of one of the Mickey Mouse characters.
