Long Island City
Long Island City, the most rapidly gentrifying neighborhood in New York City and perhaps America. Once the city's industrial core, it has now been dubbed the first 'instahood' for the frenetic pace of it's redevelopment. While many of its factories and warehouses have been torn down to make way for glass and steel condominiums much of the neighborhood's past remains, precariously clinging to life. This makes Long Island City one of the most unique neighborhoods in the city with stark architectural contrasts between the Gleaming high rises and pristine parks of hunters point to the desolate landscape of Blissville. This book is an attempt to document that coexistence of old and new.
The book contains 200 high quality photos of Long Island City.
