The Saw Lady
As I wandered around the city on Sunday, I ran into some sophisticated entertainment. The venue? Why the subway system, of course. The subways have lots of entertainment, sometimes they are gymnastic:
These were from a group at Times Square. There are several of these groups and they all operate by telling some jokes, blasting a boombox, and collecting money.
But one that I don’t see all that often is the Saw Lady.
Yes, she is playing a standard wood-cutting saw. The sound is ethereal. As I recall, she was playing some familiar tunes, but I can’t remember which ones.
The weirdest part? A couple of hours later I was walking through Times Square and heard someone else playing the saw! Two separate saw-player sightings in a day. Now, that’s interesting.
