Thanks to Elena Martinez of the Bronx Musical Heritage Center folks will have a spot to sit while waiting for the bus — and enjoy a variety of musical selections specially curated by Martinez herself.

Located at the Freeman Street Subway Station on the 2/5 line on the corner of Southern Boulevard and Louise Niñe Boulevard, ‘Boogie Down Bench’ is a project intended to give life to otherwise dormant spaces throughout the city and was one of the projects selected, specifically in areas under the subway El, bridges and overpasses.

Some of the songs you can listen to while sitting down at the booth are from folks such as Bronx Grammy winning Will Calhoun, and Circa ’95.

Janice, who’s lived in the area for 20 years loved the idea. “It gives me a place to sit down and wait for the bus for the first time since I’ve lived here,” She said. “The music is nice too,” Janice added.

You can experience the musical delights of the Boogie Down Bench until September 15th when the installation project runs until.
