New York Barefoot Pleasures

Mr. Benepe admitted that he allowed his own children, now 17 and 21, to go barefoot outdoors, “and they managed to survive.”He even confessed to having done it himself on many a beautiful summer day. Mr. Benepe said that doctors, knowing the worst that can happen, “are going to be cautious; that’s the nature of doctors.”As sun blankets the city, many people hardly think twice before shedding their inhibitions — and their shoes.Neither New York’s health department nor the parks department has any rules against going barefoot on the city’s streets or in its parks, officials said.
