Legendary musician Miles Davis’ name will now forever be tied to the Manhattan street he called home. NY1’s Jon Weinstein filed the following report.
The familiar sounds of Miles Davis’ famous trumpet filled 77th Street on what would have been his 88th birthday.
Hundreds turned out to rename this block after the musician.
And just how excited was everyone?
After a string snafu during the street sign unveiling, one enterprising and athletic fan climbed the lamp post to make sure this stretch between Riverside and West End officially became Miles Davis Way.
