Best street character: Larkin Taylor-Parker

Staff Pick

Every street character has something that sets him or her apart from the motley crew of men and women who walk Atlanta's streets. Baton Bob has his parade marshal outfits. Bicycle Shorts Man has his...well, you know. And Larkin Taylor-Parker has Sally and Aria, her tubas. Three or four days a week, the top hat-and-tuxedo-wearing 20-year-old Chicago native can be found belting out anything from Celtic music, protest songs, spirituals, big band tunes, and everything else in Candler Park and Little Five Points. When not playing the instrument, Parker spends some of her time advocating for and writing online about people living with autism (she lives with the disorder and is also dyslexic). Post graduation at Agnes Scott College, where she's studying history, Larkin plans to become a lawyer and help children with disabilities navigate the educational system. To Parker, who does indeed rock, we salute you.
