i have no experience with one, but it seems the "Official NYC Subway Busker's Amp" is the aforementioned Crate.

There is a cult of ignorance in the United States, and there always has been. The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that "my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge." - Isaac Asimov, Newsweek (21 January 1980)
The pignose have the best tone out of the portables I've heard for batter operation. If its just so you can hear youself play, those ciggerette amps have great battery life. They are lound enough to drive a guitar cab in a pinch too. I had a buddy playing out and he smoked his amp.
I happend to have a ciggerette amp in the car. We plugged it into the cab and miced it up and they were able to finish the last set. It wasnt stellar tone but for $15 its OK for driven tones. Theres no volume knob so its dependant on your guitar knobs for clean tone. The built in speaker isnt super sounding either.

Always looking for Jammers in Jersey! PM me if interested! My styles are classic rock and jam bands.
I play with friend on beach for little charity collections, so must use battery amps. I've gone through quite a few: Vox Da-5, micro cube, cube RX, cube street, crate had one... profiler series they blew out for $50 at GC, Yamha VA-10..
I am lusting after a mini mustang (came out 3 weeks after last trip to USA, haven't got them here yet).
My vote given what I've played with would be the cube street, with separate voice channel and reverb for that. I assume you are going to sing. Does acoustic electrics quite well.
I was kicked out of music class for passing notes...
