[WATCH] This Piano-Playing Busker in Washington Square Park Brings his Audience to Tears

If you have spent any time in Washington Square Park over the past few years, you have probably seen and heard Colin Huggins, a classically trained pianist who goes by the moniker "Crazy Piano Man", though he is anything but. Almost every day, Huggins grabs a grand piano out of nearby storage, wheels it down to Washington Square Park, gets it tuned, then busks for the thousands of locals and tourists that frequent the park. Meet Colin and hear why he does it in this short video from the New York Post.

Meet the Piano Man of Washington Square Park. Four times a week, Colin Huggins, 40, pushes an 800-pound piano down the street to the iconic Greenwich Village gathering spot. His life goal is to bring music — and a few tears — to the masses.
