Photo by myself at the Atlantic Pacific subway station, in Brooklyn.
Two young violinists serenaded subway riders, Tuesday evening. They played a series of classical duets.
I spoke briefly with Abi and Tim, who were very talented and friendly. Both have completed their training and are trying to 'make it' in the City.
Abi told me she performs and teaches, no longer working part-time at a cafe. She said the hardest part about relying on music for a living is not knowing how much you'll earn each day.
They be found playing at various subway stations in Brooklyn and the Upper West Side, near Columbia University. (Union Square, Tim says, is oversaturated).
A large crowd formed at one point, before the subway came. The nice thing is, the violin case they were using was filled with donations.
