Bloomberg deputy mayor for economic development Robert Steel has approved the installation of “listening stations” in several bus stops in the Bronx.

The project, proposed by the Women’s Housing and Economic Development Corporation (WHEDco), was designed to honor the area’s musical history. The listening stations, designed by Design Trust for Public Space, will be fitted with speakers placed in an overhanging canopy and lights to brighten up the area.

The stations will play music curated by the Bronx Music Heritage Center. Straphangers will also feature bits of musical history that commuters can read through while waiting for their bus.

According to a post on Bronx Times, the first listening stations will be on Freeman Street and Southern Boulevard and if the project is successful a few more will be installed along the boulevard.

WHEDco received a $50,000 grant from the city’s Department of Small Business Services as part of the citywide Neighborhood Challenge program which aims to “help local economic development organizations enrich commercial strips.”
