Biscayne Bay's Piano Bar No More
After thousands of photos and hundreds of media reports the wayward piano placed on a sand bar in Biscayne by 16 year old Nicholas Harrington is no more.
Harrington, a junior at the Miami's MAST Academy, had hoisted the piano onto the family boat with his dad and brother and put it on the sandbar on New Year's Eve.
On Friday morning the piano was gone but the name "Piano Bar" will no doubt stick, to the sand bar just a couple hundred yards east of Miami Shores.
Because of the nearby Port of Miami, Biscayne Bay is one of the most heavily patrolled, monitored, and protected bodies of water in the US, yet a teenager was able to plant a piano undetected in the middle of it.
What a gapping lack of Home Land Security.
