Even though most of the time the phrase "Only in New York" is "just a defense mechanism used to convince [ourselves] that seeing a naked man take a shit on a park bench is somehow endearing, or part of some shared cultural experience," there are still some things we can't imagine happening anywhere else. For instance, the case of two full grown men who decided to leave a bar, get naked, and fight over an iPod.
José Luis Colon, 41, allegedly walked a 39-year-old man back to Colon's apartment after the two met at a bar in DUMBO on Thursday afternoon. But before getting inside, the two decided to get naked. As if that wasn't strange enough, the sight of themselves in the buff must have set off some anger issues, because Colon slugged the other man in the face and swiped his watch and iPod. He then chased the victim into the street. Police later found the victim's property in Colon's pants pocket in his apartment.
