The cover photograph for Big L's album "Lifestylez ov da Poor & Dangerous" was taken on the corner of Malcolm X Boulevard (Lenox Avenue) and West 139th Street.
The corner is less than 200 yards away from the site where he was killed in a drive-by shooting.
Big L's home
Big L lived at 104 West 139th Street, which is just a couple of feet west of the corner where his album photo was taken.
Interestingly, the suspect in his murder, Gerard Woodley, was gunned down outside of 106 West 139th Street, which is right next door. Woodley is pictured in the top left-hand corner.
