We shot with Colin Huggins on a scorching August day last summer. Colin is a truly amazing musician, much better than you would expect from a street performer. On nice days, he plays his piano free of charge in New York’s Washington Square Park for all to enjoy.
We wanted to really get a good feel for Colin’s daily routine so we met him where he starts his working days- a Manhattan Mini Storage in downtown NYC. Colin has a system set up that he has honed over years where he wheels his piano down to the street level and then pushes this gigantic thing up 6th avenue, across west third street and into the park. Once he arrives in the park, out of breath, he must re-assemble the piano that has been taken apart for transport. Its quite a process and just one of the amazing things that everyday New Yorkers do. NYorkers.com was lucky to get the chance to ride along.
