An organization called for Sing for Hope is placing pianos all over the city for people to play, and four of them will be in the neighborhood.
The pianos are decorated by artists and simply left in high-traffic spots. If you want to try to play, do it! There have been some very cool spontaneous concerts in the past. There will also be pop-up performances.
At the end of the project (June 25) the pianos are gathered up and donate to schools.
Locally, pianos were left at 62nd and Columbus outside Lincoln Center, Literary Walk and The Dairy in Central Park and at the Cathedral of St. John the Divine. The list of pianos is here and the map of the locations is here.
And send us pictures and videos of people playing!
