Street Sign Ready For Miles Davis Way - The New York Times
Before he left office, Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg signed a bill naming a block of West 77th Street in honor of the jazz trumpeter and composer Miles Davis. The block, between West End Avenue and Riverside Drive, will be called Miles Davis Way.
Mr. Davis, who died in 1991, had an apartment in a brownstone at 312 West 77th Street, and lived there for about 25 years, until the mid-1980’s. Now the new street sign is ready, and will have a public unveiling on May 26, the 88th anniversary of Davis’s birth, at noon.
