Rule #1: don’t take pictures with the people dressed as a character. They expect a tip in return. Spiderman pretty much grabbed my son and told me to take a picture. Then he proceeded to ask for a tip. We had no change! Ha ha! The other woman that was dressed as a princess didn’t ask for any change. Everyone on Broadway in Times Square will ask you for some change. Everyone has a story, and if they don’t they’ll make one up.
