Help with Rego Park space mural

Dear Queens Crap,

The Rego Park Green Alliance, a volunteer based community group (probably best known for the mural we did on 63rd drive), started a mural at P.S. 139 on a paint peeling back wall on August 12th. It is a space mural, basically a robot tending his garden. We are looking for additional volunteers during the week of August 18th to help us finish the mural. If you know of people who may be interested, please contact Yvonne at for more information. It is an excellent way for neighbors to help cleanup our neighborhood, have fun, and meet other like-minded people.

Have you ever seen a robot tend his garden, imagine no longer. The future is now!

Thank You,
Yvonne Shortt
Rego Park Green Alliance Co-Founder

The future isn't Terminator. It's Germinator!

Weird timing:

Why can't these kids just paint over grafitti on these big walls? These murals remind me of the ghetto.

That's my alma mater, PS139!

You are right - murals of happy colors are ghetto.

But ghetto kids are the stuff of party hacks so its a GOOD thing.

Remember, the clubhouse runs things for THEIR benefit, not yours.

robots tending a garden?

why not people? I agree with the poster who said can't they paint over the graffiti?

The mural looks absolutely beautiful. Go over to P.S. 139 and take a look. Better yet, bring your kid, admire the wall, and have fun. That's what I did!

"murals of happy colors are ghetto"

There are so many things that are so wrong about that statement.

!. Racist
2. Elitist
3. Ignorant

Now I know why this site is called Queens Crap.

That mural is brilliant. It brightens up the area and provides a really appealing place for kids to hang out and play. It is the kind of thing that should be encouraged in all our neighborhoods. I'm glad there are more positive comments than negative, but I am stunned there are any negative comments at all. This one is a beautiful no-brainer.

Wow! Look what you ladies started by only planting trees and designing hopscotch boards. We would like to thank you Rachel and Sarah for all your hard work and dedication. Now from all your effort and love for our playground it finally payed off with this beautiful and fantastic mural and the Green Alliance started.
