A person dressed as Elmo shakes hands with a pedestrian in Times Square on Monday, July 28, 2014 in New York. New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio said Monday that he believes the people wearing character costumes in Times Square should be licensed and regulated. Dozens of people dressed as kids' favorites like Elmo, Cookie Monster and Batman stand near 42nd Street and pose for photos with tourists in exchange for money. De Blasio said the practice has "gone too far."  A man dressed as Spider-man was arrested Saturday, July 28, 2014, after punching a police officer who told him to stop harassing tourists.  The City Council is working on legislation that would require the characters to get a city-approved license.  (AP Photo/Seth Wenig)
