This Dancing Traffic Agent Is a National Treasure

Driving in NYC is the. absolute. worst. It’s always traffic-y, and everyone is perpetually in a bad mood because, you know, bad moods are what New Yorkers do best.

But all that changes at one Upper East Side intersection—the one manned by 61-year-old traffic enforcement agent Mentoria Hutchinson. Because Ms. Hutchinson has made that intersection into her own personal dance floor.

“I’ve never seen anyone dance and be mad,” she told the New York Times last week, in one of those great “unlikely heroes of New York” profiles the paper does from time to time. And here’s the best part, guys: There’s video of her dancing-as-traffic-directing, and she’s got moves.

Take a look!
