OK, which one of you guys was in New York yesterday......

October 12, 2007 -- What a weenie!

Tourists' eyes were popping and locals' jaws were dropping yesterday morning when a curly-haired hipster bopped around Times Square in the buff.

PHOTO GALLERY: Naked Man In Times Square

Stunned passers-by stopped, stared and snapped pics of Josh Drimmer, 26, during his several-minutes-long naked stroll at the Crossroads of the World.

After stripping to the altogether, he zigzagged back and forth along Seventh Avenue between West 47th and 48th streets in all his glory at around 11 a.m.

"Yo, homeboy's got full-frontal nudity right here!" shouted one witness into his cellphone.

Drimmer is a playwright and Yale alum from Greenpoint, Brooklyn. In 2003, he earned a byline in the Daily News covering a funeral story.

"He was a strange guy," said a man who lived in Drimmer's Yale dorm during freshman year. "He would do weird things. He would eat scraps of food people left around for a couple of hours."

In yesterday's bizarre jaunt, Drimmer first popped up around the Renaissance Hotel, witnesses said. At that point, he was serenely strolling solo in one black sock.

But then he ditched the sock and went the full monty.

He started banging on the locked side door of the Olive Garden Restaurant, but workers there refused to let him in.

The naked-as-a-jaybird jaywalker then crossed Seventh Avenue midblock and barged into Tad's Steakhouse off 47th Street.

To the delight of about a dozen onlookers outside, he jumped up and down on top of the counter inside before being ushered out.

"I want to be on what he's on," said Xavier Sanchez, 23, of Manhattan.

"You don't see this down my way at all," said Pat Purks, a tourist from Bucks County, Pa.

"The Naked Cowboy's always here. What's the difference?" asked one unimpressed woman.

The Naked Cowboy - a k a Robert Burck - told The Post he wasn't in Times Square yesterday.

"See what happens?" he said, "One day out and it literally caused some poor soul to go nuts, to keep the nakedness alive."

The strip show ended when the police showed up.

"You got ID on you?" one cop asked Drimmer.

Someone brought over a pile of Drimmer's clothes - which included plaid boxers, a blue polo shirt, and brown ankle-high boots - but he refused to put them on.

Drimmer was taken to Bellevue Hospital for evaluation, police said.

"I have no knowledge" of why this happened, his father said from his Chicago home.
