There's still time for the pianos

Play Me I’m Yours,” an installation of 60 upright pianos throughout the city, invites you to do just that — play.

The pianos are scattered across the five boroughs, including the Coney Island Boardwalk and McCarren Park in Brooklyn, free to play.

Among the intrepid include DC-based keyboard-driven indie band Jukebox the Ghost, which attempted to play a piano in every borough last week, succeeding at Brooklyn Bridge Park Pier 1. They tagged along their guitar and bass to perform a song off their forthcoming album, “Everything Under the Sun.”

You have until July 5 to play the pianos yourself, band optional. So whether you seek one out, or happily happen upon a vacant piano, it’s yours.

“Play Me, I’m Yours” Pianos now through July 5 at Brooklyn Bridge Park Pier 1, Columbus Park, Coney Island Boardwalk, the Myrtle Avenue entrance and Visitors’ Center in Fort Greene Park, McCarren Park, the Carousel and Grand Army Plaza in Prospect Park, Von King Park, and Willoughby Plaza.
