What’s that sound coming from the courtyard?
Bagpipes? No, it can’t be. It’s not even St. Patrick’s Day.
And yet, there they are, standing near the patchy lawn behind their Washington Heights apartment building — an Orthodox Jewish couple, playing the bagpipes.
Sam and Sandy Benson usually practice their unusual instrument in Fort Tryon Park, but on Fridays, when time is short and the food is in the oven, they just come downstairs to play.
