Description

Auction broadside of central Long Island City, printed in black and red.

This attractive auction broadside shows Long Island City during its first boom, at the beginning of the 20th century. Long Island City is currently the fastest growing neighborhood in New York.

The 59th Street Bridge is called "Blackwell's Island Bridge" after Blackwell's Island (which would subsequently become Welfare Island and then Roosevelt Island). The broadside includes two views of the bridge.

MoMA PS1 is illustrated photographically (as "Public School Opposite Lots in Block Including in this Sale").
