From the “Metropolitan Diary” column in the June 4, 2007 New York Times:

Dear Diary: My wife and I were walking through the cavernous Columbus Circle subway station and witnessed this scene, which requires no comment: A disabled subway performer was playing his guitar and harmonica, guitar case open at his feet to accept donations. An elderly, stooped man walked by him, dragging a huge sack of empty soda cans. The performer stopped playing, called out, "Sir!," pulled two dollar bills from the guitar case and gave it to the old man, who said, "Thanks," and walked on. Jack Levitt
