In this Aug. 11, 2014 photo Hugo Gomez depicts Lady Liberty in New York's Times Square, where police have begun a campaign in five languages to inform tourists that photos with costumed characters are free and tipping is optional. Gomez, a 34-year-old Dominican immigrant with three children, stands on prosthetic devices under the gown for five-hour stretches, but says the work now takes a toll without much payoff. He says that before the police-enforced measure, his act drew about $150 in tips each day. In recent days, it was only about $40. (AP Photo/Verena Dobnik) less
