Serendipity and String Quartets

mneme and I were wending our way home on Sunday. We were on Sixth Avenue and 33rd, in Manhattan, and I turned us north, in the mistaken belief that I was heading south. mnemex quickly pointed out my error, but it didn't really matter, as our goal was a subway station, and there was one in both directions.

So, we went into the station at 34th Street and Sixth Avenue, got through the turnstiles, and heard astonishingly good music. It was coming from a live string quartet: four women, two violins, a cello, and a viola. They were good enough to be sending cues, but not so ultra professional as to feel that they should make the cues ultra subtle. This made it a lot of fun to watch. And, they were clearly having fun as well. mnemex took pictures, as did a lot of other people.
