    About The Work

    In this unique ink drawing, Duke Riley outlines his design for the Beach 98th Street Playland MTA Station, located in the Rocakways neighborhood, New York City. Commissioned by the city to design three large stained glass pieces for three subway stations in a neighborhood rich with survivalist history, Riley’s project Be Good or Be Gone aims to capture the spirit of the Rockaways in his graphic Americana-influenced style. In Beach 98th Street MTA Station Tugboat Study, Riley depicts an old-fashioned tugboat pulling a recycling barge, a variety of nautical flags decorating its posts. As of October 2011, the final stained glass panels designed in this study have been installed.
