seeing new york

Bekka PalmerComment

Yesterday, My mom and I were on our way back to Brooklyn from the city and we saw this group of teenagers playing their violins and cello on the F train platform. The train was taking its sweet time, so we ended up hearing them play five or so songs. They played a wide variety from Mozart to Coldplay’s Viva la Vida. It wasn’t until about the third song that a large crowd started to build and their talent and stage presence began to shine through. At one point they had the entire platform applauding them, and everyone seemed to forget they had been waiting twenty minutes for a train. It’s moments like this that make me love New York even more.
