"Busker of Philly—Rittenhouse Square." Day 3 of 100 Day Notepad Sketch Challenge. Buskers (street musicians) and Rittenhouse Square pretty much go hand in hand. Rittenhouse Square is a great place for listening and a great place for busking! I always feel that buskers in Rittenhouse get the proper attention as they would get as if playing the Academy of Music or Kimmel. So many times, we pass by street musicians and enjoy their music, but don’t stop to show them our appreciation! Rittenhouse Busking is the exception. In the park, philly folks, stop, listen and hopefully place a dollar to two in gratitude.
