NEW YORK, July 22 (UPI) -- The American Association for Nude Recreation said it would like to see a designated nude beach at Coney Island in New York.

Tom Mulhall, a spokesman for the association, said Coney Island would make a good location for a nude beach "because it's so easy to get to by mass transit, and it would certainly attract more Europeans and out-of-state tourists to New York, because they would finally have a convenient place to sunbathe nude," the New York Post reported Thursday.

However, city officials said they have no plans to add a nude beach as part of Coney Island revitalization efforts.

The association said the current closest nude beaches to the city are located in Fire Island, N.Y., and Sandy Hook, N.J. However, city laws allow for women to go topless on city beaches if they choose.
