7 Line L.I.C.


Like no other New York history book before it, 7 Line L.I.C. documents and celebrates the dynamic architectural and social landscape of one of Gotham’s most storied neighborhoods, Long Island City. Written and photographed by Queens-native Joseph Anastasio, here are the inspiring and sometimes tragic stories of industrial might and economic neglect; of resilience and reinvention; of factories, tenements and soaring glass towers with some of the most stunning views in America. In the tradition of Walker Evans, Stephen Shore, Camilo José Vergara and Margaret Morton, Anastasio unflinchingly examines the spaces between seen and unseen, past and present, with the diligence, sly wit and streetwise empathy that’s the mark of the true New Yorker.
