Paying $75/hr for a bespoke carpenter in NYC for a very sentimental log

We have a piece of a tree that shut down 5th Avenue when it fell. A byproduct is that it shut my grandmother's street on the day that she died. We have a carpenter to turn the log into coffee tables, but I'm wondering at the price he's quoted. $75/hr is a good deal? More info (and the beautiful story of my grandmother's death) inside.

Cheap rent ANYWHERE on the East Coast

It's a bit of a wide net I'm casting here, but where's the biggest and/or nicest apartment I can rent for under $500 in fairly cool cities in the Eastern half of the USA?

Resources for buskers and street artists - the biggest events, festivals and communities, please.

I'd like to find out about the biggest street performer events and communities and festivals and stages as possible. All and any links are welcome. What are the best online resources as far as busking/street performer/street art communities are concerned? I've already been to performers.net, where I'm posting this question as well. I'm in New York City, but anywhere is fine.

How to find buskers and street musicians/artists/performers without stumbling over them

I've set up a website showcasing NYC's street performers, among other things. It has just started, and I'm trying to tell artists about it. I've tried contacting MUNY and performers.net, with mixed results. Other than traveling Manhattan's streets with a business card, what other ways are there of getting in contact with the city's street artists?
