Florida Piano Mystery Solved
And like most things, the mystery is far more exciting than the truth.
A piano mysteriously found on a sand bar off the coast of Miami was put there by a teenage artist trying to get the attention of his first-choice college, Manhattan‘s Cooper Union.
Nicholas Harrington, 16, took the piano in his dad’s boat to Biscayne Bay and left the baby grand on the sand bar, the teen said Thursday.
“I wanted to create a whimsical, surreal experience. It’s out of the every day for the boater,” he said.
The piano sat untouched for nearly three weeks until a boater snapped photos of the oddity and the story went viral.
