Oh, to have been on this Lower East Side train last Tuesday, when straphangers were treated to Stay Human Band's rousing rendition of "Empire State of Mind."
The group -- who've boisterously busked on trains before-- were on their way to a gig at Rockwood Music Hall, where they played a mix of pop songs and jazz standards.
This subway performance truly looks like one of those beautiful only-in-New-York moments for everyone involved, and reminds us of last week's spontaneous "Bohemian Rhapsody" sing-along aboard the L train.
New York, of course, has some of the world's best buskers. Remember Damon Scott's soulful performance of Adele's "Someone Like You"? Check out some of our favorite subway performances below:
