A nice guy in a green shirt helped me bring my busking gear up all 4 flights of stairs leading to the elevated subway platform – the help was much appreciated, especially since it was another hot, sticky day with temperatures in the 90’s. My Music Under New York permit today was for the...

Lady Steps Out of Limo to Put $300 in Buskers Hat

As I reached the subway station, on my way to playing in the subway, a lady looked at me and said “I saw you on channel 13!”. That’s so nice. When I got to the Times Square subway station there were two hoofers (tap dancers) on the platform. Each one of them had their...
