Item details

Be Good or Be Gone is an art installation of faceted glass in platform windscreens at the Beach 98th Street A/S train MTA subway station. It shows two images of a Piping Plover – an endangered bird that has chosen a section of beach at the Rockaways, just a few blocks south of the 90th Street station as one of its few remaining nesting grounds. The nautical flags spell out the popular phrase “Be Good or Be Gone” which can be seen behind the doors of several pubs and restaurants in the neighborhood. This piece, created by Duke Riley, serves as a reminder for visitors to take care and appreciate the fragile environment of the area.
