Video of the Day: The Barnes Dance

The people who brought you the Bike Box video now visit the more pedestrian Barnes Dance. Named after NYC traffic commissioner Henry Barnes, the "dance" allows pedestrians to cross intersections in all directions safely while all lights are red for about 17 seconds.

Last summer we visited the idea of bringing the Barnes back to more of our streets. Streetfilms says they know of only one place in Manhattan, 17th Street & Broadway, where one can scramble about so freely these days, do you know another?
