Beyond the horns and the traffic of the streets of New York, the air was filled with another sound on Monday - the sound of music.
Sixty pianos were placed at spots around New York for members of the public to play in a project called "Play Me, I'm Yours." Let's drop in on the Big Apple and get the story behind the music.
Some 60 pianos were delivered to various locations across the city for the public to play. The project is the brainchild of Luke Jerram.
Jerram teamed up with New York-based non-profit group Sing for Hope, which collected the pianos and arranged for their distribution.
"Play Me, I'm Yours" was launched in the UK in 2009, and has also hit cities including Sao Paolo and Sydney. Now, the project is being rolled out in New York and London simultaneously.

Luke Jerram, program creator, said, "Really they are a blank canvas for everyone else's creativity. This is not about me and my little idea, this is about providing an opportunity for everyone else to express themselves and connect with one another."
