NEW YORK (AP) - It’ll soon be easy to identify some significant cultural sites in the Bronx.

The Center for Arts & Education is partnering with nonprofits City Lore and Dancing in the Streets to create the South Bronx Culture Trail.

They’re currently identifying sites, which will be designated with physical markers.

The Daily News (https://nydn.us/1t4jlhT ) says among the landmarks is 1520 Sedgwick Ave. where DJ Kool Herc is credited with creating hip hop in 1973.

Other sites include the D Yard, a train yard where early graffiti artists tagged subway cars. There’s also Casa Amadeo, one of the city’s oldest record stores.

Once launched, the trail will offer guided tours of the Bronx, a map, website and art installations and performances at the sites.
