Subway Pole Dance-Off Somehow Ends Peacefully

By

Pole-dancing and subway wildness have both been in the news today, but now, thanks to Gothamist, they're in the same place. And unlike the earlier instances — of Edward Snowden's acrobatic girlfriend and San Francisco's crazy naked man, respectively — there is no darkness to behold here: A woman, inspired by a dancing busker, just joins in on the fun only to show up the original performer, and then they each go their own way. New York City is magic sometimes.
