Everyone in the city is speculating about its origin: Some people think it may be a viral marketing action, others think it may be an art project, but nobody really knows why or how it got there. Another grand piano appeared in Biscayne Bay in Miami, Florida, back in January 2011. The two events seem to far apart to be related, but who knows.

The legend of the East River piano – June 2014:

How sad that so few, in this modern and industrialised age, know where pianos come from. If not kept in captivity, grand pianos return to the ocean, musical leviathans of the deep that they are, and spawn in the deep ocean trenches. In the lightless black abyss, black and white notes mingle in the waters, released there by the spawning pianos. Their spawn are free-swimming for the first few years, before undergoing a growth spurt in the shallows. Then, on certain brightly-moonlit spring tides, baby harpsichords jangle ashore to begin the cycle anew. This majestic beast has obviously beached itself in distress. Whether with some disease or confused by manmade underwater noise, we’ll never know.
