My friend Harry got a concession to offer food, drink and music on an unused sandy spit off tthe East River (seen in the background here) where the water taxi came to port in Long Island City. This shot is from September 2008.
Continuing to post old pictures from Septembers past, this is the first one from 2008.
Another image from September 2007. The Ariel East and Ariel West were 2 brand new skyscraper apartment buildings that went up across Broadway from one another causing some controversy at the time, with posters decrying the “monsters in our midst.”
