Sometimes when traveling underground around NYC and it’s outer boroughs I feel as if I am a rat scurrying around a maze with all kinds of twists and turns. Some passages I take are dark, some entranceways are narrow, and some are just quite scary. Yet, among the hustle and bustle there always seems to be something going on to be entertained with. The amount of talented people who live in the NYC area is mind boggling. Sure, at times the subway performers can drive us crazy when trapped in a crowded subway car, but then you come across a few that really make you pay attention and take notice. There is so much musical and artistic talent that sometimes it makes you slow down and take it in for a minute or two. I just had to take a few pics of some while making my way to the next train or hurrying to get to work.
Not sure if these guys are mimes or what but they did look cool. Wonder if I could make a withdrawal at that ATM?
I would hire these dudes for any wedding party! They were great!
Nothing like the sounds of the islands to put a smile on our face in a dreary subway stop.
Not only did he play great but that was a pretty cool guitar!
I thought I walked into a Slipknot concert but these guys still rocked it underground!
Nothing like some blues slinging from his royal highness! Good stuff.
Damn, they can make art out of anything down here! Even subway maps!
Great playing and self promotion! This guy knows how to work it underground!
Another fun band to take a quick listen to when making your way to the next train.
Not just fatty fast food in Penn Station, as there is some musical talent there too!
A classic NYC underground music shop that is still doing biz. Old school style.
There is always a churro lady around now and then for a treat to snack on when taking in the sights and sounds of the underground. How much for all of them?
