Plaza

Formerly named "Frawley Circle", the traffic circle was renamed "Duke Ellington Circle" in 1995.[1] In 1997, the Duke Ellington Memorial by sculptor Robert Graham was erected in the middle of the shallow amphitheater composing the circle.[2] Though the circle diverts the flow of 110th Street, Fifth Avenue maintains a direct route through the intersection.

A new main location for the Museum for African Art designed by Robert A.M. Stern Architects is scheduled to open at the circle in 2011 and will be the first addition to New York City's Museum Mile in decades.

Neighborhoods

Duke Ellington Circle connects the New York City neighborhoods of Harlem with East Harlem. Harlem, which since the 1920s has been as a major African-American residential, cultural, and business center is to the north and west of the intersection, while East Harlem is located to the east. The nearest area of Central Park to the circle is the Harlem Meer.

Transportation

The M1, M2, M3 and M4 New York City Bus routes serve the vicinity of the circle. In addition, the 2 and ​3 trains of the New York City Subway stop nearby at 110th Street and Lenox Avenue, while the 6 and <6>​ trains stop at 110th Street and Lexington Avenue.
