New York’s washed up piano has become a video star

Everyone’s taking a bypass to see the concert grand that has been washed up near the Brooklyn Bridge.

It has been there now for all of a week and every network news channel has had a gawk at it.

In any European city, the authorities would have removed it and a sentimental philanthropist might have paid to restore it for some public benefice. But New York is New York. What gets washed up there just stays. Forever. Whatever.

  • I was down there yesterday to look at it. A steady stream of people wandering down to take photos in a forlorn area where the mafia used to dump their victims (perhaps they still do). It’ll probably be there in six months from now.

  • Alas I sort of think the instrument is beyond hope. It’ll make people happy though if it stays in that spot for a while.
