A new public art installation may make some Bronx residents wait for the bus a little more musical. Appropriately named, the "Boogie Down Booth" sits on the street below the Freeman Street station in South Bronx, and provides a 24/7 spot to hear local music. Folks waiting for the bus can sit and listen to a 17-song curated playlist that is piped out (not too loud) on speakers. The playlist currently includes tracks from Living Colour drummer Will Calhoun, and rap group Circa '95.

A collaboration between the Design Trust for Public Space and NYC's Department of Transportation, the Boogie Down Down is part of the Under The Elevated initiative, which aims to make city space below transportation infrastructure more useful (or interesting).

So is it a subway station, as the title says, or a bus stop?

Can anyone confirm if this the stop where Kris Kross allegedly "Missed The Bus" ?
