The Sixth Annual No Pants Subway Ride In NYC

No pants, no prob!

They came. They saw. They took off their pants.

More than 200 people participated in the sixth annual No Pants! Subway Ride on the 6 line yesterday.

"We're all going to take our pants off and have a lot of fun," said organizer Charlie Todd, 28, of the Improv Everywhere group. "It's not against the law to wear your underwear!"

Participants gathered at the Brooklyn Bridge-City Hall station, boarded a 6 train, "de-pantsed" and exited at different stations. Then they reboarded other uptown trains to the shock and amusement of fellow subway riders.

"I'm standing here with no pants on," said Melissa Poles, 31, of Manhattan, who crocheted a blanket while confused onlookers tried to make sense of the stunt. "I'm awesome."
