Somebody vandalized downtown Bangor’s street piano again. This is why we can’t have nice things.

This year’s street piano in downtown Bangor, located once again in the Pocket Park next to Central Street Farmhouse, has been — as it was last year — an enjoyable part of life in downtown Bangor. And, unfortunately, like last year, it was once again vandalized.

I mean, maybe it was the elements? I highly doubt it. The wind doesn’t remove entire piano keys on its own. This is why we can’t have nice things, Bangor. 🙁

Here’s a video of last year’s street piano, in happier days, being played by Willy Buchstaber of Stetson.
