Those Buddhist monks in the Battery are con men

June 14, 2015- I spotted some strange men in Buddhist monk outfits by Pier A. Their gowns were made of fake polyester, which caught my attention. Real monks do the orange dye of their cotton garb themselves. Also, they were wearing American running shows, which seemed to me to be very monk-like.

Sure enough, they are con men. The Post reports that these fake monks are suckering tourists on the High Line and other tourist traps.
