Make Music New York
A Streetfilm by Clarence Eckerson, Jr.
Running Time: 3 minutes 18 seconds

Make Music New York is New York City's version of the international Fête de la Musique, which took place yesterday in 340 cities around the world. Clarence Eckerson, the bicycling videographer of StreetFilms, endured two thunderstorms to bring you these highlights. The first band you see playing on Houston Street is the Professional Basketball Players with Streetsblog tech guru Nick Grossman banging the drums. 

Did people get to see any of the bands playing yesterday? Did it feel like Make Music New York had an impact on the urban environment or is New York so big that it just sort of swallowed up all of these bands?
