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.
