9. Cellist Buskers

No longer the turf of mariachi bands and doo-wop groups, the subway stations in your hood are becoming society gatherings. It’s nice to have someone class up the joint. And we’d pay to watch someone lug a cello down a flight of stairs any day.

Also, this upgrade from all those assholes playing “House of the Rising Sun” on beat-up acoustics. Next time that happens, we’re third railing.
