Lincoln Heights/Cypress Park

Artwork, usually embracing aspects of the area's long cultural history, is a significant component at most of LA Metro's rail stations.  The Gold Line is home to a variety of artistic features, done in various media and styles.  At Lincoln Heights/Cypress Park, third station outbound, a statue of a Tongva (the original inhabitants of the Los Angeles basin) woman drawing water is adjacent to the inbound platform.  The image of a coyote and the representation of a river are displayed along the other platform.

This neighborhood was formerly heavily industrial and commercial.  New residential development has taken place, evidenced in part by the building in the background.
