More love from Street I Am

More uber kind shout outs from Street I Am <3



Jul 03 2016


After many months of being illegally harassed, physically evicted, threatened with jail & worse , I’m so excited that tonight, the Uptown A C E is free from one of the NYPD’s stupid, erroneous lock downs. I got to see practically everyone …. well, anyone who’s anyone  ‪#‎happydance‬ ‪#‎independence‬


Which means, I get to see Danny again! <3 Here, he’s tellin’ me he’s actually got the key to the 14th St subway bathroom. The guy is connected! ! ‪#‎busk ‪#‎thesubwaydiaries‬. ‪#‎danny‬


One of my 2 favourite cleaning guys on the Uptown A C E who always comes up to me & says, with a thick Russian Accent; “Dont’ stop thee muzeek, don’t stop thee museek…” #buskinglove


Best night ever singing Motown all night with the one & only Danny on the Uptown A C E ‪#‎busk‬ ‪#‎thesubwaydiaries‬


Let’s hope the NYPD has better things to go from here on out than harassing musicians

#Freedom #Busk #Independence

Tonight Underground :)

Guy with multiple cameras hangin’ from his neck: “So, I took some photos of you & here’s my card”
Me: “Ok, thanks”
Guy: “So I took some photos of another girl who sings down here & is an actress & she also wore shorts with tights just like you. And that’s what I specialize in”
Me: “In what?”
Guy: “Photos of girls in shorts with tights, or stockings or…”
Me: (to myself) OMG ick!
***Below = Danny’s face on overhearing the entire conversation – Priceless 🙂

Tonight on the Platform

Danny to me at rehearsal tonight: “I got my subway shoes on”
Me: (looking down at his black sneakers) “How come you call them your subway shoes?”
Danny: “Cause I cut off the back part here to make ’em more comfortable & not look so fancy as when I got ’em you know. You know you can’t look too fancy down there in the trains or else people’ll think you got too much money & won’t give you none of that green. I could wear a different silk suit every day down there but I wouldn’t make no money you know. You gotta have that little bit of a homeless thing goin’ on down there in the trains. That’s how you make all them dead presidents.”
Me: “Somehow, Danny, I kinda think you could wear a solid gold plated suit & you’d still clean up underground.” : )
