      • There used to be a man who would sit across the street from the Art Institute of Chicago who was great on the drums. Haven’t been there in a few years so I don’t know if he still drums there. Often times there are street drummers in Times Sq subway station as well as other muscians, but I especially love the drummers. Somehow the beat — hearing it grow louder as you approach then drift away as you move on — just seems the perfect thing to hear alongside all of the footsteps in the subway.

        No subways where I live and few buskers anywhere, so I don’t hear street drumming too often. Maybe that is why it is one of my favorite things about large cities.

      • What a nice story, thank you for sharing! You make a good point – I think it’s interesting that street art is more prominent in cities. Why do you think this is? Do we just notice it more because we’re all closer together and forced to “run into” it just by way of travel?

  1. Yes, Catherine, echoing Anne, I love the sound of drum beats; there are some marvellous buskers who set up buckets in the New York subways and put on incredible shows. Love it. xxx
