Pole dancing on the train

Nothing like this ever happens on my train:

A STRIP club isn’t the only place in town you can see a pole dance – amazed passengers on an L train in New York watched in awe as a naked young woman competed with straphangers for space on a pole.

The performance by actress Jocelyn Saldana, 19, lasted just 30 seconds, and some of the passengers probably thought they were hallucinating or dreaming.

Most were blasé, however one woman started screaming and an elderly man next to her got the shakes.

That free show in mid-June – as well as similar ones from Times Square to Chinatown – were the creation of photographer Zach Hyman, 22, whose portraits are never under-exposed.

The photographer and his volunteer models don’t spend much time on location.

The model quickly disrobes and Hyman gives himself only 30 seconds to fire off 10 shots with his Hasselblad 500 film camera.
