A New York City subway train (the Eighth Avenue Express) mentioned in Duke Ellington's signature song "Take the A Train" and famously performed by Ella Fitzgerald. The A Train passes through Harlem, stopping at 145th Street ("Sugar Hill"), a center of African American culture during the "Harlem Renaissance" between the world wars.
You must take the A Train / To go to Sugar Hill way up in Harlem / If you miss the A Train / You'll find you've missed the quickest way to Harlem ...
