Rockaway Park-Beach 116 Street

K K Kozik

First on the Beach and Wednesday Night Fireworks, 2008

Laminated glass in the station building interior windows

Laminated glass artwork on the two interior clerestory windows evoke night and day in Rockaway Park. One window shows a timeless interlude on the beach, complete with unfurling towels as beachgoers stake out space on a bright sunny day. On the opposite wall, a night sky over the beach and ocean is transformed with bursts of fireworks, as rapt families and neighbors gather to watch the Wednesday night summer tradition unfold.

Artist K K Kozik created the originals in pastel and her drawings were transformed into the glass panels that capture the detail and expressive palette of her summer day and night. The building is the terminal station for the A and S in Rockaway Park and serves as a focal point for the tight-knit community.
