TIMES SQUARE - early Tuesday morning, August, 1945
There was Dancing in the Streets of New York, May, 1945
UNCONDITIONAL SURRENDER OF THE WEHRMACHT, Although Still Unofficial, was the cue for a bunch of youngsters to carry over their celebrating far into the evening on Times Square. They brought along their musical instruments, sat on cars and set a solid number bouncing down the WHITE WAY. 2 sailors caught the mood, and to the delight of bobby soxers who beat time with their hands, danced a modern, victory version of "THE SIDEWALKS OF NEW YORK."
