If you know New York, you're probably aware that the South Street Seaport is at the bottom tip of Manhattan's island, a relatively quiet place best known for its big ships, cobblestone streets, and creepy mall (finally, an Express that overlooks the water!).

But very recently, things got a little berserk far, far downtown, when an elderly woman named "Grandma Tracy," sporting an attached fannypack and gravity-defying ponytail, stopped for a dance break on the pier. She drew a crowd, including the attention of The Onion's own Baratunde Thurston, who -- with steadycam in hand -- was ready to show the world that life begins at 60, especially when it involves breakdancing in public to the screams of the young and restless.

Summer in the city: there's nothing like it.
