Streetfilm: Barnes Dance!


Streetfilms' Clarence Eckerson filmed the only place that we know of in Manhattan where pedestrians can go out and do the Barnes Dance, also known as the Pedestrian Scramble, at the intersection of 17th Street & Broadway. There you’ll find red lights in all directions for about 17 seconds, allowing pedestrians an exclusive phase in which to cross safely. You can even groove it diagonally if you wish. So get out and dance; no cover charge.
