Piano Bar in Biscayne Bay . . . Literally

From the New York Times:

A Mystery in Black and White on Biscayne Bay

Maggie Steber for The New York Times

Boaters dropped by the sandbar in Biscayne Bay on Tuesday to try out the mystery piano.


Published: January 25, 2011

"North Miami, Fla. - From the shore, it looks like an oddly shaped buoy. But as residents here have discovered on closer inspection, it is in fact a grand piano perched upright on a narrow sand bar in Biscayne Bay - a sight that has inspired wordsmiths to compete to name South Florida's newest curiosity ('piano bar' seems to have won.)"

To read the entire aritcle, go to:

The town is now asking the kid that did it to get his boat back there and remove it or get a fine.
