This Fall, 75 pianos have been put in public locations all across Boston, Brookline, Cambridge and Somerville as part of “Street Pianos Boston: Play Me I’m Yours.”

Four of the 75 pianos are being placed right here in the North End / Waterfront neighborhood. All of the pianos are painted and decorated by local artists and are outside for residents and visitors to enjoy. At night, the pianos are covered or secured to protect them from the elements.

Stop and play for a while, watch someone else play, or simply enjoy the music on your walk home!

Here are the four pianos we found nearby. The links go to a page where the public can upload photos and video of piano performances.

I hope these pianos are well anchored to the ground or they will end up at the bottom of the harbor!

Great idea! So much fun to suddenly come upon one of these pianos with some talented people just sitting down and playing.
