Listen to him sing, and you might think that Frank Sinatra has come back from the grave to give one last performance. Gary Russo, a construction worker on Manhattan’s East Side, serenades the city during his lunch-time with his amazing voice almost completely like Ol’ Blue Eyes himself. He does everything from Frank Sinatra to Neil Diamond, and the city has been appreciative of his performances.
” [I] Karaoke in the shower and in the car and in front of the mirror making believe I was singing to people,” Russo said. “Then I said, what the heck, I’ll do it over here.”
Russo is drawing fans of all ages, giving the world a taste of some quality, classic music.
“No, I’m not a Frank Sinatra fan but since he’s been singing, I’ve been singing myself,” co-worker Jeffrey Harper said.
Passer-bys enjoy the music, as it puts smiles on their faces on busy work days. A sign behind Gary reads, “forget all the noise, traffic and the impact of the 2nd avenue subway. Enjoy the music.” Thanks to Gary, that’s exactly what we’ll do.
