All the world’s a stage—especially when it’s summer in New York. We shot video of street performers showing off their stuff outdoors in Central Park and Washington Square Park, two hot spots for catching some of the city’s most colorful unsung talent. From Pachelbel to Johnny Cash—with a little slack-line walking in between—check out a few impromptu shows below.

Jason: “I usually play in the subway because the money is much better. But it’s nice to be able to play outside when you can.”
