Photo by myself on the subway platform at 34th Street.
My guess is that this young man was waiting for his father to return.
I've seen the two of them here together before. The sign near the cds says the musician plays the erhu, a Chinese stringed instrument.
The above scene created a small stir on the subway platform. This youngster played various tunes (pretty well), using both index fingers.
In the meantime, the New York area is bracing itself for yet another snowstorm.
At this writing there are several inches of new snow on the ground. The sky is a ghastly pale orange. Weather reports are predicting up to 12 inches of snow overnight!
