New Piano Secured For Oval Park

Here's an update in the saga of the purloined piano--BxNN reader Lis says a kind-hearted soul offered to donate an old piano of theirs to to replace it, free of charge (local group Friends of Williamsbridge Oval had been planning to chip in and buy a new one).

Now they just need folks to help pick it up in Midtown and load it into a truck. Here are the details from Lis:

So we are picking it up tonight and placing it in the park tonight; we need all hands on deck! Those who can help with moving and hoisting a piano, please assemble outside of PS 56 on Hull Ave. at 6 pm this evening (Tuesday night). I will be out there in a bright pink shirt with “I Am the Bronx” logo on it… we can then divide up cars and who can ride in the UHaul to pick up the piano.

For those of you with children, I would be happy to watch them at the park while you help get the piano from Mid-town. Tomorrow, at noon, we, along with many area children, will be meeting in the park to paint the piano. We welcome any paint donations.

There you go, folks; head over to PS 56 tonight, or show up to the Oval tomorrow with some paint, if you're looking to lend a hand.
