Long Island City, New York

Another one from the archives – January, 2009. This one was taken out the window of the old Court Square elevated subway station, looking out at the Court Square Diner before it, too, was renovated.


Industry City, New York

Went out to Industry City in Sunset Park, Brooklyn, last weekend. They’ve turned several massive old industrial buildings into a massive, hipster (with kids) retail complex. We were intending to follow a self-guided walking tour which included artists’ studios on upper floors – they were all closed. So there was lots of Covid-style eating establishments and trendy retail, Halloween decorations, period architecture, public art (to come in future posts, but nothing especially galvanizing).
