The Traffic Dance
These two traffic cops had their work cut out for them on this drizzly evening on the West Side of Manhattan,
for there was not only the typical rush hour traffic, but huge numbers of pedestrians heading for and coming
from the nearby Javits Convention Center, where Comic Con was in full flamboyant swing.
And while none are seen in this moment, many were so heavily costumed as their favorite superheroes or monsters
that, between limited vision and exuberance, they could easily have missed taking notice of even the largest truck or bus.
Thus, police whistles and shouted commands were the order of this super-heroic evening rush.
