Students Replace Graffiti on Overpass With Mural Showing Neighborhood Map
QUEENS — A mural featuring a neighborhood map will soon replace graffiti tags covering the walls of an old Long Island Rail Road overpass on the border of Forest Hills and Rego Park.
The mural was designed by a group of high school students attending The Baccalaureate School for Global Education in Astoria, who are currently painting it on Fleet Street, between Thornton Place and Alderton Street.
The school requires its 11th graders to complete a project that would show their creativity and also engage local community, the group said.

One of our HS teams will advance in Moody’s Mega-Math Challenge.

We will find out if we go further as one of five finalists next week. Kudos to “Team 9429”!
