☞ LISTEN: The Street Pianos Arrive in Harlem

British artist Luke Jerram has designed 167 Street Pianos in major cities all over the world and many of them have arrived in the uptown nabes this past week. The hand-painted pianos can be found in St. Nicholas Park (top photo), by the fountain sculpture at St. John the Divine (middle) and the East Harlem's Art Park (last). They are covered with plastic during off hours but by mid afternoon, folks are encourage to play some tunes and make the city streets more merry. Other locations in Harlem include Riverbank State Park and the Dana Discovery Center at the Harlem Meer (Central Park North). Check them out before they move on to another city!
