Times Square Characters
People have their photos taken with Super Mario, Hello Kitty, Elmo and Minnie Mouse characters in New York's Times Square, Tuesday, April 9, 2013. A string of arrests in the last few months has brought unwelcome attention to the growing number of people, mostly poor immigrants, who make a living by donning character outfits, roaming Times Square and charging tourists a few dollars to pose with them in photos.
