Subway Sinatra croons for crowds
New Yorkers trapped in traffic around a huge construction project are being entertained by a Sinatra-singing subway worker.
Construction foreman, Gary Russo takes to the street in his lunch hour to sing classics to crowds of onlookers.
He says he does it to 'give something back' and that when he decided to take it to the streets, his colleagues didn't believe he had the guts to do it.
"Tough guys are going, 'What? You're going to sing at lunch?' and I was like, 'Yeah'," he said.
Mr Russo says he honed his talent in front of the mirror, reports the Daily Telegraph.
"That's how it all starts," he said. "I sang for hundreds of hours with a microphone in my room. You know, you practice. Then I said, 'What the heck. I'll do it over here'."
Russo is helping to construct a new subway line under Manhattan's 2nd Avenue on the Upper East Side.
But his singing is drawing fans from far and wide after a video of him became an internet hit after it was posted on YouTube.
