If a Neighbor Can See You Naked, Do You Have to Cover Up?
Neighbors get eyeful of nude neighbor | Duluth News Tribune
We have a male neighbor I'll call "Flash" who frequently walks out to get his newspaper -- or the mail, or to retrieve something from his car -- while he's as naked as the day he was born. He's in his late 50s and divorced. Some of the women in the neighborhood know not to look toward Flash's home if they're out for a walk. They have discovered that he is most likely in the buff, standing at his glass door or sitting at his front office computer with the door open. Flash is otherwise a likable and helpful neighbor. We do not want to say anything that might destroy that relationship. It's not against the law to be a nudist, or for a woman to go topless in public in this city.

My apartment on the top floor of a Brooklyn co-op faces a courtyard. A resident on the opposite side of the courtyard complained to management that I have been spotted naked in my apartment. The neighbor must see me early in the morning when I go to the kitchen to boil water. The waist-high window has curtains pulled back at the bottom around a plant on the sill, and the courtyard is about feet across. This person must be working pretty hard to catch this view.
