Serenade, Below 59th Street

59th Street, nyc
Photo by myself, below 59th Street, Columbus Circle.

A musician serenaded the subway platform, Tuesday night.

Sitting on a suitcase, with his guitar plugged into an amp, the singer also used his left foot to operate a drum. A one-man band!

Funny to look at the faces of the other people. How to look in such an environment.

My eyes are attracted to the man with his fur hat!

I'd like to get permission to use a photo of Park Slope you took in October 2012 on a cowbird.com post. You can read it here: http://cowbird.com/story/62026/Park_Slope_1990/. I did credit the photo at the bottom of the poem. It is not exactly where I lived, but really captures the feel of that neighborhood (and doesn't have a Starbucks in it!!)

Please let me know-- if not, I will take it down.

Thanks Andy!

Hi SC and Bieb
I loved the looks of the other people, too, ha. And I think it's a woman in the hat!

SRQ, he was very good! He was crooning away and quite a few people were standing around, mesmerized.

Hi Ken!
I'm not sure what genre it was, sort of bluesy and heartfelt.

Hi Susan,
No problem at all for using the photo. Thanks for asking!
