The King of Song, Below Ground

King of Song
Photo by myself below 34th Street.

A blues singer named Remy Francois played for commuters. Every time I see this singer, he is wearing a crown and looks a bit sad.

The MTA sponsors art and artists, including musicians. There are non-sponsored musicians all over the place, who play in the stations, on platforms and in the trains. Only the sponsored ones have their names printed on banners.
