Many happy hours in Steinway showroom.

Came across this ancient photo from about fifteen years ago. When I lived in NYC - you can tell how important that time was to me, as I write about it so often! - before I got myself a piano, I would go to the midtown Steinway showroom and ask them if they minded if I played the piano there for a bit. They used to let me play for around an hour at a time and I went there many times before getting my own piano (which, I might add, was something of a comedown after the Steinway!!)
