NANTUCKET — It’sa Friday morning and Jody Bachman, 70, sits on a bench outside a souvenir shop watching vacationers go by. There’s plenty to see on these cobblestone streets. Visitors pose for selfies in front of quaint storefronts. Vintage Land Rovers and polished Jeep Wranglers zip through town. Business owners set up for the busy summer season.
Soon there may be quite a bit more to see on this scenic slip of an island. Residents last month voted to approve topless sunbathing on all public and private beaches, a move that promises to bring a dash of European abandon to an enclave better known for preppies and privet hedges.
