New York City Ballet

Today as I was walking to work on Carmine Street in Manhattan I witnessed something amazing. The street cleaner came up behind a row of cars and politely honked. Then, in unison, all of the cars (except one police exempt vehicle) roared to life, turned to the left (blocking oncoming traffic), let the street cleaner do his job and then gracefully backed up into their original parking spots. This choreography was repeated on the next block, only this time the car that didn’t move had a parking ticket. Beautiful.
