BUSHWICK — Don't let low temperatures stop you from taking your top off.

Blog "Boobs of Bushwick," which posts topless photos of local men and women, is hosting a party Tuesday where there will be a photo booth and professional photographers snapping pictures for the site.

Blog owner Kate Chiplinsky, who started taking the photos in local bars for fun two years ago, said the photos on the site are not meant to be sexy and are more about being fun.

Tuesday's party at The Rookery, 425 Troutman St., will follow a similar philosophy — it won't be a naked party, just a regular party where some people might take off their tops, she said.

"It's not a topless party," Chiplinsky said. "But it will definitely be more than likely that some boobs will be out, if not wandering about then maybe for a fleeting moment."

Chiplinsky, who works at bars The Rookery and Alphaville, often has people approach her while she's out or working, wanting their topless photos taken after hearing that she runs the blog, she said.

She gets out her iPhone, snaps a shot and posts it to the Tumblr, she said.

Soon after a Brooklyn Magazine write-up and a post to Reddit, more people started asking about the blog or requesting to be on it, she said.

"People just think it’s funny," she said. "It’s definitely a light-hearted thing."

The free party will have photos that look more professional, with her photographer friends milling about and a backdrop with the "Boobs in Bushwick" logo printed on it.

The party will also feature drink specials, DJ Prince Terrence and beer from new Bushwick brewery Braven.
