Cole Porter’s Piano

A friend of mine was in New York City last weekend, staying at The Waldorf Astoria. In the lobby they have Cole Porter‘s piano.

There are places on the web (like Ask.com) where it says that guests in the Cocktail Terrace “are often entertained with live music played on” the piano. But, as the plaque shown here indicates, the piano is now being preserved as a relic and not played.
