Day 5 Log
Date: August 27, 2010
Location: City Hall Park. In front of the fountain. Fountain wasnt on today.
Hours: 3 hours. 12:30 PM- 3:30 PM
Today was a shorter day because I came into the city late. I have to take a 1 hour train just to get into the city and its a bit of a hassle. Sometimes living at home is better. I like trees and grass.
Some of the things that i noticed were when I played a few classical pieces consecutively, people really appreciated it because I changed the entire atmosphere of the park. Many people come there to unwind from their jobs and when they hear me play they thank me for changing the busy mood of the city into a relaxing environment. I’m glad I can be apart of that.
There are alot of French people visiting New York City this week. I met 3 people from France, 1 who showed me a few latin licks on the piano. Another was reading a book and enjoying the weather.
Finally, at the end of the day, i met a woman who would not stop talking about her daughter and about how talented she is. “She can play piano, the violin, she’s on the swim team, and I’m trying to get her sponsored for her ice skating tournament.” She was very nice, but I just wanted to play. Haha. Fun times in the New city of York.
