It's a beautiful way to exist in the city. I don't think I would be here anymore if I didn't have it.
Andrew was wrongfully arrested while busking in Brooklyn in 2014, and the video of his arrest went viral. He used the incident as an opportunity to speak about the importance of busking. "People support it, people want it there. It's a really integral part of the city. " he says.
