A group calling themselves "Z Street Art" has taken credit for the re-christening of the N train in New York City as the Ñ train. The artists say the project was done in honor of the 24 percent of New Yorkers who speak Spanish.

This is not the first time we've heard of the Ñ-line . BuzzFeed reports that the group Línea Ñ proposed the city should annually make the name change for Hispanic Heritage Month.

According to the Z Street Art's Tumblr, the artists intend to create and post one piece of street art a day in New York City over a period of six months.

Banksy's current open air exhibition "Better Out Than In" has brought renewed interest in New York's street art scene.. (Z Street Art is following Banksy News on Twitter.)
