My wife Eve Biddle and I designed this mural, located where the LIRR passes over 63rd Drive in Rego Park, Queens.
Rego Park derives its name from the Real Good Construction Company which began operating in the neighborhood in the 1920's. This mural, REAL GOOD, reanimates the optimism encoded in the name Rego to illuminate the 63rd Drive underpass. Rego Park's ancestral association with construction suggests potential for future creation. The metamorphosis of the wall from dusty gray to vivid color reminds passers-by of possibility. We can control the image of the place in which we dwell through positive action.
The mural was commissioned by The Rego Park Green Alliance and NYCares.
It is located four blocks from the 63rd Drive/Rego Park stop on the R and V subway lines:
