This Saturday marks the day in 1958 when dozens of jazz greats posed for a photo that became known as "A Great Day in Harlem."
Captured by Art Kane for Esquire magazine on August 12th 65 years ago, the black-and-white image (original title: "Harlem 1958") shows 57 legends including Count Basie, Thelonious Monk, and Charles Mingus gathered on the stoop of a stately Harlem brownstone.
So where exactly was the picture taken?
In a spot that still stands today: townhouse number 17 on E 126th Street between Fifth and Madison Avenues in East Harlem.
To commemorate the famous location, the block was officially co-named “Art Kane Harlem 1958 Place” in 2021.
The new street sign can be found just steps from the house on the northwest corner of E 126th Street and Madison Avenue.
