9. Art Underground, Part II
In the W. 116th Street subway station (2 and 3 lines)
In the W. 116th Street Station, artist Vincent Smith has created murals featuring jazz and cultural figures from Harlem, including Miles Davis, Charlie Parker, Sarah Vaughn and Dinah Washington. It is Smith's intention to "capture the lyricism and spirit of the African Diaspora within the Harlem community." This depiction of the heroes and landmarks of Harlem is the first chapter in a story that is continued at the W. 125th Street Station and concludes at W.135th Street.
