Miles Davis Gets A Manhattan Street Named After Him

It was recently announced that Don Cheadle will be playing the late jazz musician Miles Davis in the biopic Kill The Trumpet Player, but that is not the only way that Davis is being honored.

On Wednesday, New York City officials including Mayor Bloomberg, renamed W. 77th St. on the Upper West Side of Manhattan to “Miles Davis Way.” The street was the longtime home of the jazz musician and the location of many of his stoop jam sessions.

Miles Davis died in 1991 at 65-years-old and is considered one of the most influential musicians of the 20th century. This change in street name comes after Davis’ neighbor, Shirley Zafirau, won her longtime battle to get the street name changed in honor him.
