YouTube Vid Salutes Brooklyn Heights’ Godfather of Traffic Cops

The intersection of Cadman Plaza West, Old Fulton Street and Vine Street is a hectic one indeed. And without a good traffic cop to orchestrate the rush hour, things could get out of hand. Check out YouTube user sudarabajan22’s video of this NYPD traffic maestro in action.

    I see this fellow almost every day and he makes me smile. Huge tourist attraction as well. I know that he loves the attention, and it’s nice to see someone enjoying themselves while performing a physically demanding job.

    Does anyone remember when Candid Camera had a clip of a cop “dancerecting” traffic? I think it was early 70’s or maybe late 60’s…
