LIC Night

Long Island City, situated on the East River in Queens, across from Manhattan, remains (despite heavy high-rise development along the river) a pocket of commercial and light industrial activity: printers, die fabricators, livery garages, bakers. et al. At night, the activity takes a different form, a sort of active desolation. The pounding of traffic on Queensboro Bridge, overhead. The rumble of the Long Island Railroad as it cuts through the neighborhood. Cabs, hurriedly racing, from their last drop-off to find fares at the bars around Court Square, or Greenpoint, or beyond, glaring at the photographers as they pass. (2012)
