Sing a song of New York City

07/01/11 12:54PM

 A project called for Sing for Hope has placed 88 pianos in public places around New York City for people to play before the instruments are auctioned off for charity. We found Eric Donnelly tuning this one not far from our office.This being New York City, someone stole one of the 88 hopeful pianos not long after it was set up in a park.
