The bill may soon be passed in New York City to allow something called the Barnes Dance to come to one of the 25 busiest and most dangerous intersections in the city. Maybe these north New Jersey intersections could use a little Barnes Dance? This unique style of crosswalk-ing allows for pedestrians to cross any way, even diagonally, in the intersection for 15 seconds. The Barnes Dance was named after a former mayor somewhere, to allow for an intuitive way for people to cross busy intersections It’s also known as the pedestrian scramble. Which do you like better?
