NYC Subway Worker Sings Sinatra [Video]

Gary Rousseau, a subway construction worker in New York City, decided to spice up his lunch break. In the spirit of "hard hats and microphones," he set up a microphone and amplifier, and performs Frank Sinatra songs at his construction site on 2nd Avenue. Says Rousseau, "we're trying to give back a little bit."

With the hand-written sign behind Rousseau reading "Forget all the noise, traffic and the impact of the 2nd Ave. Subway, enjoy the music," we'd say he's accomplishing that goal.

He is absolutely amazing. I could listen to him all day.
As to the anal retentive people out there, relax ,enjoy the sun,smile (it takes more energy and muscles to be contrary then it does to smile) and thank God or whom ever your higher being is, that you can hear this wonderful music. Remember there are thousands of people that would love to hear a talented gentleman sing. Congratulations on a job well done.
