Soul Train FEVER! Soul Train Line (Flash mob), Times Square NYC

People of all ages came to celebrate the life of Don Cornelius, creator of the beloved musical variety TV show, SOUL TRAIN. Hundreds arrived at the 'center of the world' , Times Square, to recreate a mass Soul Train Line. Some arrived in 70's fashion, others brought their children, exposing another generation to the show that connected so many people through music and dance.

Afro's (not weaves) was in fashion again, if only for a day.

New generations being introduced to the Soul Train Line.

Remember the boom box?

Nice to see entire families out having a good time.

RollerSKATEs not blades. If you're from Brooklyn and you're a skater, you MUST remember the Empire Roller Disco! I remember a few skate-dancers on Soul Train.

This sequined hat was popular disco head-wear in the 70's-80's.

Back Up!! There was such a dense grouping of people waiting to dance, that it took some time for a narrow space to open up for Soul train Line dancers.

The crowd parts for the Soul Train Line.

Get yo' dance on!

Check out the KNOW that was hot on SOUL TRAIN!

Soul Train Line. The space didnt stay open for too long because too many people wanted to dance, some started doing the electric slide, others danced in a circle. Maintaining space for the Soul Train line was difficult due to the crush of people in attendance.

Smiles all around. It was nice to see so many happy people.

Get yo' dance on!

RIP Don Cornelius September 27, 1936 – February 1, 2012. Love, Peace and Soul!
