The New York Times has a nice write-up of the Dance Parade that I participated in yesterday. I even get a brief mention. Not by name, but I was definitely the "zoot-suited lindy hopper" being talked about:
Some spectators were even moved to join in. Stephen Murray, 47, a
financial adviser, came with his wife, Kate Murray, 47, a dancer turned
“I can never get him to dance in clubs,” she
said. But yesterday, they got a quick lesson from a zoot-suited Lindy
Hopper. “How often do you get to dance down Fifth Avenue?” Mr. Murray said, and did.
I totally remember that incident. The woman came up and asked me to teach her husband the basic step, which I gladly did. Fun!
