One of the things that make a subway ride nicer, besides seeing someone give up their seat to the senior citizen or pregnant lady or person with kids, is the music. Gothamist is generally flushed and frustrated from the commute, but yesterday, a string quintet was settled at the shuttle station in Grand Central, and made not just us but others smile. When we saw them on our way home, we asked for a card but they had run out that morning. We thanked them for bringing some beauty into our commute and hope they will email us.

Music Under New York is the MTA program that lets different performers and ensemble perform in different subway stations.
