Staten Island, N.Y. – The Staten Island Economic Development Corporation (SIEDC) and David Carr, Chief of Staff for New York City Council Member Steven Matteo, unveiled the SIEDC’s latest public art installation at Rab’s Country Lanes, a bowling alley and entertainment center located on Staten Island.
Located at Rab’s 1600 Hylan Blvd. address, the installation is a colorful 10’.5”x10’ mural that features a pair of wings encompassing the names of Staten Island neighborhoods. Borough residents and visitors are encouraged to visit the installation, take photos and upload them to social media tagging @SIEDC.
“We are thrilled to provide the community with a creative way to celebrate Staten Island,” said Cesar J. Claro, President and CEO of the SIEDC. “Rab’s Country Lanes is the perfect location for our latest art display. Passersby – including bowlers – can stop for a quick photo opp to show some love and support for their hometown.”
Public art is just one way the SIEDC works to improve neighborhood charm and build community throughout the borough. Through Business Improvement Districts and Merchant Associations, the SIEDC advocates for much-needed services including private maintenance and security, signage and way-finding information, and beautification initiatives such as holiday lights, new trash receptacles and more.
