Day 67


March 6th, 2012

I had never given any thought to the origin of "Rego Park", the name of a neighborhood in Queens. Nothing about it grabs your attention; it sounds like it was probably named after some guy who owned a lot of farmland or something.

But no! Rego Park, you see, was developed by the Real Good Construction Company, and its name is actually a shortening of Re(al) Go(od). Fascinating! Sort of.
