$1 for the flute player

For a few years now I’ve been seeing a man in the subway that sits and plays a flute for hours on end for the amusement of anyone that happens to pass by the corridor he’s seated in New York Penn Station. I have to admit, with all that practice he’s gotten pretty good at playing popular tunes. When I see him I usually drop a dollar or two into his hat and give him a “hello” as well.
