Famed musician and performance artist Laurie Anderson had model drone planes buzzing over Battery Park City’s Rockefeller Park June 19. “They’re really toys, and they move in a very weird and beautiful way,” Anderson told The New York Times. “And because people think of drones as killing machines, generally, I’m interested in finding ways to use them in a different, magical way.” She reportedly told the cheering crowd, “Let’s hear it for the whistle-blowers. What’s going on in America?” Anderson, a Downtowner, was performing as part of Lower Manhattan’s annual River to River Festival.
