Found: one flute player

The gentleman you see to the left could be found, almost without fail, playing his flute on the Bleecker Street F Platform, any time of night for years. That's a platform we spend a lot of time on, often in a hurry and usually carrying bags of show stuff and props. His mellow, mellow music was always a soothing presence when we invariably needed some calming down. And then, several months back, he disappeared. I was genuinely bummed out, and always hoped we'd see him again the next time we came down the stairs, but no dice. Then this afternoon I saw him playing out in the sunshine at the subway entrance on the corner of Houston and 2nd. I was having a stressful day and it genuinely made me feel better!
