Empire State Building Sues Over Topless Photo Shoot

A professional fashion photographer has been sued for taking topless pictures on the observation deck of the Empire State Building.
 
The owners of the midtown landmark filed a $1.1 million lawsuit against Allen Henson for a set of photos he took in August.

 
According to court papers, Henson didn't apply for permission and never notified the building about his plans for the photo shoot. Building representatives called it objectionable and inappropriate because the observation deck is a family and tourist attraction.
 
Henson says the view from atop the building is so breathtaking he didn't think anyone noticed.
 
He also says that he hasn't used the images commercially as the suit claims.
