just when i was getting mad at the city.
Friday, March 11, 2011
sometimes i feel defeated by the city with it's frigid winds, trashy streets, crazy blizzards, and don't get me started on the ever increasing price of well, everything (i'm looking at you rent and MTA).
but a group of 3 adorable old men acapella singers got on the subway yesterday and started singing "i've got sunshine, on a cloudy day....."
mid chorus the plumpest singer shouts out "sing with me new york" and starts a wave of singing and hand clapping on the 1 train. it was the most exhilarating moment with a bunch of strangers and left me, oddly, with a happy lump in my throat.
these 3 guys, clearly, had very little money, yet they completely made my day. my faith in the city is now restored. i should sport a touristy i love new york t-shirt for the day.
