cool. really nice tiles can add a lot to a station.
i like the ones of frederick douglass at 110, the natural history museum ones, and the spanish harlem ones.

this tune goes nicely here. it's joe jackson's "uptown train" from his most current studio album, Rain. it's a mix of ramsey lewis and horace silver blue note sounds. enjoy!

[1] i love frederick douglass. i thoroughly enjoyed reading and learning about him in college. when i played in ireleand, we got a great tour from a (music) tour manager. belfast, was really interesting. i was pleasantly surprised to see a giant mural of frederick douglass on the side of a building there downtown. gave me a sense of comfort and home.
