Q: So-how-do-you-get-piano-in-subway?A: Very carefully.
Okay... I have no idea... *continues to stare*
Love it! There's really nothing like the NY subway!
Good question, never really thought about it. And if that paint bucket is for donations, they have some high expectations.
I can empathize with this guy. I was once involved in this thing called "Strolling Stings" And I play the cello.
That's one glorious typo there Lily. I think you win by default!
If it's a handicap accessible station, then the elevator. If not then a well used gym membership.
I tried to get my high school marching band to put a piano on wheels and let me "march" that way. Hitch it up to a couple of the bass drums and away I'd go. My band teacher disagreed. I marched the cymbals instead.
We love that guy! His piano gets a little shabbier every time we see him, guessing he uses the stairs.
I've seen a lot of pianos in my day, some stored in sheds, in garages, in the backs of churches--all in pretty awful shape--but none... quite like that.Was it in tune?
Natasha, there are people who can identify the sounds the subway cars make when they start up -- note for note. They say it's the first three notes of "Somewhere" from West Side Story.Me, I'm not quite so keen of ear. I was mostly trying to figure out how they got that hulk up the stairs.
I'm from California and how they get anything in a subway is a mystery to me.
LOL!! Now THAT'S what I miss about living in NYC!
I've seen this guy a couple of times. He's a terrific pianist and I just smile ear to ear to see a real piano in the station.
I saw a piano in the Union Square stop last month. wonder if it's a traveling act and it was the same guy.
