Album Description:

In July 2013, NYC Parks joined artists, volunteers, NYC Service and the Rockaway community to paint the longest mural in New York City and beautify the barriers erected along Shore Front Parkway from Beach 74th to Beach 107th Streets. After receiving more than 50 submissions, a committee of NYC and Rockaway artists, architects, and designers selected ten finalists. Over 500 community members voted to select three of those designs by artists: Jade Chan, John Garcia, and Patty Harris. Hundreds of volunteers came out to the Rockaways to paint the barriers and help beautify the city.
