Historic LIC

"LIC/Historic Red and Green"
Oil on panel
6x6 inches

There is one historic block in Long Island City not far from my studio. I love walking down that street and looking at the stately homes where the once powerful leaders in Queens lived. It is a quiet, tree lined block, very different from the industrial blocks dotted with manufacturing buildings surrounding it.

Three adjacent buildings were restored and redesigned by an architect/photographer several years ago and fit in nicely with their neighbors. I really like the charming green accents. These homes exude a warm and welcoming facade, so unlike the newer glassy boxes sprouting up all around the neighborhood.

Just another slice of little ole LIC.
