Default Street Drummer on 42nd Street in NYC

On the way home Friday night I saw a street musician setting up his improvised drum set on the corner of 42nd and Broadway...

#1) ...and started playing as I passed so I stopped to take pictures. As soon as I left...


#2) ...I saw a cop walking hurriedly in the opposite direction and had an inkling of what's about to happen so I followed. I actually felt sorry for the guy as it was a Friday night and he was just getting started...


Thank you for looking. C&C welcome.

In Seattle one has to have a permit to entertain or hawk their wares or to even pan handle.... and they have to place on what corner they do such ....

Thanks, Frank.

#3) They put different wax figures out on the street at Madame Tussaud's to invite people in. This time it's Morgan Freeman's.

Morgan? How does he find time to be a wax figure when he's in just about every movie of the last 10 years!

. Maybe it's in every celebrity's bucket list to be featured at Madame Tussaud's?

#4) Morgan Freeman's neighbor over at Ripley's Believe It or Not.
