This afternoon, on what happened to be the three-month anniversary of Occupy Wall Street, swing dancers and jazz bands “occupied” the platform of the Second Avenue subway station as vintage subway cars traveled from the station to Queens and back. Levys’ Unique New York Tours, which offers tours such as “Jewish Gangsters of the Lower East Side” and the “The Bowery Punk Rock Pub Crawl & Walking Tour,” coordinated the festivities along with the N.Y.C. Swing Dancers and N.Y.C. Balboa Club. As tea and cookies were served, Susan Keyloun, a contributor to The Local, shot the videos above and below. (She also took photos that you can find in The Local’s Flickr group.)

The M.T.A.’s vintage trains will make their final appearances at the Broadway-Lafayette and Second Avenue stops, among others, next Saturday.
