A recording I made on the 6 Train going uptown in New York City. As you can hear the train sits there more than a minute before it heads from 23rd Street onward. I used an iPhone 3G and the FiRe application which uploads directly to SoundCloud.

I had to go to the Social Security office in downtown Brooklyn. I took the 4 Train back into NYC. I feel at home when I hear, “Stand clear of the closing doors please.”.
Julie and I needed to waste some time before we met friends for Julie’s birthday so we stopped by Guitar Center to visit my friend Dan who works there. You can hear some Reggae in the background. I think all music stores around the world sound incredible similar.
My friend Leslie (on the right) needed to get a new piercing so we stopped by one of New York’s famous Tattoo parlors Adorned. I like the song that’s playing. Does anyone know what it is? Buzz buzz!
Time for the celebration so we head to Supper. It’s a great Italian restaurant owned by Frank Prisinzano who became well known in NYC with one of his other spots simply called “Franks”. The food was great but as you can hear it was well loud. My poor musicians ears would have preferred a much quieter place but this is Manhattan on a Friday night.
All the recordings were done on my iPhone using the Griffin iTalk application. You can download and use these recordings for whatever you like. Here’s a download link for the 16bit aiff files. Included is a bonus audio file recorded on the F-train:
